The Bolsover School

Ofsted rated The Bolsover School 'Good' in all categories during a full inspection in June 2016. A subsequent inspection in November 2021 confirmed that the school continues to be 'Good'.

At The Bolsover School we believe in nothing but the best for our students and aim to be outstanding in everything that we do. We are ambitious about all that we do and focus our work on improving the academic attainment of all our students.

A relentless focus in securing high academic outcomes for students is at the heart of everything we do at this school.  Alongside this focus on academic achievement, students are encouraged to embrace the wider aspects of school life and to participate in the many extra-curricular activities on offer.

A commitment to develop the whole child is very important to us. The Bolsover School is fortunate to have wonderful facilities, exceptional staff, motivated students and supportive parents.

We believe that our partnership with Redhill Academy Trust gives us the opportunity to continue our improvements and for the school to one day be recognised both locally and nationally as a truly outstanding school.
