It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Bury Grammar School Girls. We are a forward-looking school with high aspirations and a commitment to unlocking every pupil’s potential. Our pupils and their teachers aim high in every area - in academic studies, the huge range of extra-curricular activities on offer and in developing personal skills and qualities.
An All-round Education
Pupils leave us as well-rounded, confident and independent young adults with excellent academic qualifications, a positive approach to life and their studies, and a grounding which will undoubtedly help them to succeed in the future. At BGSG we provide our students with a top class education where every student has the opportunity to excel and take part in a range of academic subjects and extra-curricular activities. Our students are encouraged to contribute to the community through voluntary work and also take part in work experience, school trips, opportunities provided by local businesses and national events.
A Grammar School with a Modern Approach
The Bury Grammar Schools have a long and successful history, dating back to 1570. We are both immensely proud of our traditions and happy to be a modern school, keen to embrace new technologies and innovative teaching methods. As part of our history we are proud of our former students who remain part of our Old Girls’ and Old Boys’ Associations, and not only act as role models for our current students but have forged a strong relationship with the school which will continue throughout their lives.
Small Class Sizes
Our pupils benefit from age 3 to 18 from the impressive range of skills and expertise offered by our teaching staff, as well as the considerable advantages presented by small teaching groups which focus carefully on individual support and progress. As a girls’ school with a brother school, Bury Grammar School Boys, we can offer all the benefits of single sex teaching alongside the advantages of being able to participate in extra-curricular activities with BGSB pupils.
As a strong and successful school, we are fortunate to enjoy 21st century facilities including a modern, well equipped Junior School and purpose built classrooms for our Early Years Foundation Stage pupils. We also have a state of the art Sixth Form Centre with its own cafeteria and an Arts Centre which provides excellent Library facilities and modern light art rooms. Many other parts of the school have been enhanced in recent years including the food and textile rooms, music rooms and laboratories. Our excellent sports facilities include a swimming pool.
Outstanding Pastoral Care
The BGSG approach to pastoral care is a caring and modern one: relationships between pupils and teachers are excellent and we entrust girls with positions of leadership to bring out the best in them and above all we are committed to fostering a happy learning environment where girls can thrive. We are also proud of the strong bonds built with parents through regular communications.
At BGSG aspirations are high, learning is enjoyable and pupils are prepared for successful futures. We are committed to offering the very best to our young people and encouraging every pupil to shine. To come and see all of this for yourselves, please contact 0161 696 8600.
