BIGS was created in response to demands from the Bolton
community. Although we are still in our infancy we are
confident that we have set the foundations of a school that
will create an outstanding learning environment for our
students. Our ethos of striving for academic and moral
excellence will instill in students the necessary requirements
to become future leaders with sound moral compass.
BiGS promotes close links with parents as we believe it is
essential for BiGS, learners and parents to form a strong bond
in order to achieve our common goals.
The governing body is indebted to the support from Makka
mosque and the wider community in allowing BiGS to be formed.
We are confident that your ongoing support will continue to
help BiGS grow from strength to strength and produce young
women who are able to contribute to society in a positive
manner. These students we trust will be role models for others
