Last week, Bolton St Catherine’s Academy was visited by Sir John Rowling.

Sir John was given a knighthood for ‘Services to Education’ in 2003. He is the founder of the school improvement organisation PiXL (Partners in Excellence).

Bolton St Catherine’s Academy are proud members of PiXL whose sole focus is to raise standards in education for all young people. PiXL now has a membership of 1,600 secondary schools, 500 sixth forms, 600 primary schools. Bolton St Catherine’s Academy is a member at all three levels.

Sir John spent some time with our Year 5, 6, 10 and 11 students. He spoke to them in the hall about aspirations in life and education. He then visited a number of lessons in Secondary and Primary to support the fantastic work our staff are undertaking. Following his time in lessons he partook in a question and answer session with our student council.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Sir John for coming to Bolton St Catherine’s Academy and his support in our drive to raise standards in all aspects of our students school life.

Thank you!!
