Our Pupils

Our pupils are our finest ambassadors, with each and every one of them playing their part in making Bury Grammar School the happy and successful school that it is.

We believe that in order to learn effectively, all pupils need to feel safe and happy.  The wellbeing of our pupils is central to all aspects of education at BGS.  Pupils feel respected and valued, developing in confidence as they transition through the various stages of our school.  Not only are our pupils ambitious with a willingness to learn, they also understand the importance of making the most of all of the opportunities that BGS has to offer them.

We value pupil voice and the roles of our pupils within the BGS community and believe they are the best advocates of our school.
