Bury Grammar Schools

Boys' Junior School

The spirit of mutual respect, fair play and friendship which exists throughout the School fosters an atmosphere which allows the boys to thrive.
Set in its own historic building (the former Court and Police Station for Bury), the Boys’ Junior School offers a caring, secure and happy environment. Throughout the School, the curriculum provides extensive coverage of mathematical, scientific, creative, aesthetic and practical spheres of study and is supported by an extensive range of enrichment activities in Music and Sport. The boys participate in frequent educational visits to museums, theatres and lectures.
Boys are encouraged to develop a love of learning, to identify and explore their talents, and to pursue a wide range of interests. As a result of this ethos, when they transfer to the Senior School they are maturing into articulate, confident and considerate young men, equipped with the necessary academic and social skills for the next stage of their education.
