Our Estate

Bury Grammar School dates back to 1570 but the current campus was established in 1903 and is located in a leafy, 45-acre estate in Bury, Lancashire.
 
Although much of our Girls' Senior School dates back to 1903, we have added to the estate in almost every decade since, ensuring that the School provides a sense of grandeur and tradition along with leading-edge architecture and facilities to all our pupils.  The estate allows the School to offer extensive sporting and enrichment activities to all our pupils and provides an ideal learning environment for all academic subjects.
 
The Bury Grammar School Estate comprises of:
