Bolton Infants’ School
Bolton School is regarded as one of the leading educational establishments in the North West of England. The site was first conceived in the early 1900’s and is a significant historical landmark building on a key gateway into Bolton town centre. With its frontage of mature trees, and the imposing sandstone entrances into the school complex, it makes a major contribution to the local streetscape.
Significant consultation with Bolton Council’s own Conservation Officer has enabled a modern design to evolve which still makes reference to the main school complex through the use of matching materials and design features. The finished scheme provides a state of the art education facility within a historical setting.
