New Class Names 2020/2021

This year we decided to throw the gates open wider and ask for inspirational people all over the world for our class names.

We are so proud of the names that were chosen. They represent different genders, areas of excellences, ages, time frames, reasons for being inspiring and much more.

They represent people who can inspire us to strive for greatness. 

Do you know who these people are and why they are inspiring?

New Class Names 2019/2020

You will have noticed our new class names this year.

 We held a competition to ask children to vote for inspirational people with links to Bolton or Greater Manchester.

 We were so impressed by the quality of entries and how much you had thought about people who inspired you.

 We have activists, actors, paralympians, inventors, writers, and much more. Click on the links on the left of the page for more information.

 We are proud of our Boltonian, Greater Manchester and world wide heritage and we think that our class names reflect that! There are inspirational people with links all over the world included.

 Please let us know if you think of any other inspiring people that we could name classes after in future years.
