The Careers Department

Whether as eminent medics, leading journalists, international sports stars, award-winning actors, renowned academics or dedicated public servants, it is fair to say that Bury Grammar School has proudly played a part in the success of so many ex-pupils and students who are making a difference to our society. The broad range of skills and talents that we have encountered in our pupils over the years have provided experience in a wide range of career routes, higher education courses and vocational options. Our Careers Department aims to ensure that pupils have accurate and up-to-date information to help them reach an informed decision, having considered a range of options. Pupils are given access to resources which enable them to explore and develop their career aspirations. Pupils and students from all year groups are welcome to visit the Careers office in the heart of the Sixth Form centre. Careers and options advice are part of life at Bury Grammar School from age 11 to age 18. Former students have progressed into a wide range of prestigious career routes, higher education courses and vocational options. Whichever field you are passionate about is the one we want to help you access!
