The May Serenade was a wonderful celebration of the musical talents in the Girls' Division. The evening offered a varied programme featuring Girls' Division and Joint ensembles, soloists and choirs. Awards from the annual Music Festival were presented and a new tradition began, with the previous year's winners passing down the trophies to their successors. In addition, there was a breathtaking display of GCSE and A Level coursework from Art and Technology subjects.

Pupils in the Boys' Division learned more about the founders and benefactors of Bolton School in a special assembly to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Lord Leverhulme, who jointly re-endowed both Divisions in 1915 to create the Foundation that exists today. However, this year's assembly focused on two more modern additions to the School: the Tillotson Pavilion and the Chemistry Block. Both were built sixty years ago in 1958.
