The BGS approach to pastoral care is a caring and modern one: relationships between pupils and teachers are excellent and we entrust students with positions of leadership to bring out the best in them.
Older pupils are encouraged to mentor younger ones, the long-standing tradition of appointing Prefects and a School Captain/Head Girl plays a significant role in the School’s ethos, and all students are encouraged to take on the role of Pupil Ambassadors to promote the School at the highest level.
BGS is a leading school in this region where our pupils consistently reach outstanding academic standards, achieving exceptional examination results at GCSE and A Level, and gaining places on courses at top-performing universities.
We are proud of the excellent relationships which exist between staff and pupils and amongst the pupils themselves.
Bury Grammar School has a long history of academic excellence, dating back to 1570.
We are both hugely proud of our traditions and happy to be a modern school, continually embracing new technologies and innovative teaching methods.
These are developed, not only in the classroom, but also through our rich extra-curricular programme.
ISI inspectors recognised this during their 2014 inspection of the school: ‘Pupils of all ages develop outstanding personal qualities: they are friendly, confident and articulate.
