Bury Grammar Schools


Competitions such as Young Enterprise, Sir Rhys Davies Mock Law Trial and ICAEW BASE all further develop our students as they look to their futures.
There are a range of competitions for pupils which take place across many subject areas. The Biology, Languages and UKMT Challenges, Maths Olympiads and the Rotary Public Speaking events are just a few examples of areas in which BGS pupils can stretch themselves.
Aspiring Lawyers gain valuable court experience in the Sir Rhys Davies Mock Law Trial. Our team of Sixth Formers are given witness statements and other documents in order to prepare a case. They then attend Grammar Schools Manchester Crown Court and present either the case for the Prosecution or the case for the Defence against a team from another school or college. A real judge tries the case and returns na verdict at the conclusion.
Budding entrepreneurs set up and manage their own companies as they enter the Young Enterprise competition. They develop a product and raise capital before marketing and selling it. This is a particularly useful exercise in teamwork and is helpful for those interested in Business, Finance or Economics.
