Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy is named after the last Baron of Halton, Henry Bolingbroke.
Bolingbroke was the name of Henry IV of England who was crowned in 1399. Henry Bolingbroke was the last Baron of Halton, so he is a local historical legend.
“We wanted the school to have a name which related to the local area and to the specialism. Henry Bolingbroke was not only the last Baron of Halton but is also a literary figure, particularly in Shakespeare, so this also reflects the English specialism- he features in Richard II, Henry IV part 1 and Henry IV part 2.” – John Rigby, Principal
