Bury Grammar Schools

Girls' Junior School

Our aim in the Girls’ Junior School is to provide excellent teaching in a happy secure environment where all girls feel valued.
Our girls display confidence which enables them to gain knowledge, develop an enquiring mind and grow into independent learners in order to prepare them for the next stage of their education.
Set in an academically challenging environment which is vibrant and stimulating, the Girls’ Junior School challenges pupils and enables them to flourish.
We are committed to developing each girl and nurturing her potential. High aspirations, quality teaching and outstanding pastoral care go hand in hand. The broad curriculum consisting of Maths, English, Science, Humanities, Modern Foreign Languages and Latin is supported by an extensive range of enrichment activities in Art, Music, Drama and Sport. We take pride in our girls’ achievements.

The Girls’ Junior School constitutes an inspirational, challenging and an all round education providing the academic and social skills to continue their journey to Senior School.
