Bolton Muslim Girls' School


Careers Information and Guidance

'To work together in a supportive, secure and pleasant learning environment that promotes high standards for all, a love and ownership of learning; spiritual growth, best standards of conduct founded on Islamic morals and British values and prepares learners for their role as caring and contributing Muslimahs in modern Britain.'


At Bolton Muslim Girls’ School, we intend to help all learners to achieve their full potential and prepare them for the best possible future, so that they can benefit personally and also help the community that they belong to. Our Careers Programme focuses on raising the aspirations and achievement of individual students and equipping them with skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning. We hope to achieve this by providing the learners with an invaluable Careers Service in Years 7-11.

Bolton Muslim Girls School is committed to ensuring that our CEIAG programme continuously improves and it delivers the necessary impacts for our young people. This is achieved through:

  • A designated Careers team which includes an independent Careers Advisor who is dedicated to providing impartial careers information, advice and guidance to students on all the options available to them. If any information is required please contact:

Destination Data


All students are supported and tracked during their time at Bolton Muslim Girls' School Interventions are put into place to support and ensure all students have a September guarantee.  This is closely monitored by the CEIAG team so every leaver is engaged in some form of education, employment or training.

Students with additional needs are supported within school though additional careers meetings with our careers service, personalised visits to post 16 establishments are arranged and extra support is given to them whilst the students complete their post 16 application. We also work closely with the careers service to ensure that vulnerable students are supported throughout the summer before they enrol with their destination.

The school continues to offer support to leavers once the enrolments have taken place. Tracking is continued and support is offered to those who haven’t been able to secure an appropriate place at a post 16 destination.
