Senior School 11-18
Our students develop into genuinely good people possessing both the courage and confidence to speak up, and to work to build a better world.
Old Scholars & Friends
Our Old Scholars and friends are at the heart of the vibrant Bootham community. Their shared memories and life experiences enrich and inspire the current, and future, life of the school.
Bootham School is all about getting the very best – intellectually, personally, spiritually – from the young people it is privileged to care for, and setting them on a road of lifelong flourishing and fulfillment, to the benefit of society as well as themselves. It is a lovely, unique and successful school, with an atmosphere all of its own. So much of this arises from Bootham’s Quaker heritage, which provides the ethos, environment and framework of enduring values, practices and approaches that underpin an education which fully addresses the real needs of modern young people, and makes ours such a happy and thriving community.
Bootham Quaker Ethos
The values of the Society of Friends have been at the heart of Bootham School since it was founded in 1823. The purpose of Bootham’s Quaker Education is to liberate and equip its young people to flourish as adults and to live adventurous lives that will serve to create a better world.
