Bury Grammar Schools

Sixth Form

BGS Sixth Form offers students an outstanding academic education, a greater sense of independence and the best possible preparation for university and later life.
 
The Sixth Form provides excellent teaching and learning resources to help students attain their potential, develop their skills and move forward with confidence. Independent study is crucial and the two learning zones in the modern Sixth Form centre allow this to take place either individually or in groups.
 
Our Sixth Form is totally unique: teaching takes place in small coeducational classes, enabling students to prepare for university, while all students are cared for in single sex pastoral groups.
 

 

Every student has a personal academic tutor who monitors performance, agrees targets and ensures best working practices are being followed. Academic results at A Levels have been consistently outstanding with the vast majority of students embarking upon their first choice course at some of the most prestigious universities in the country. Fortnightly tutorials, personal support and guidance for UCAS applications and university entrance from the highly experienced Sixth Form Team offer students the best possible opportunities to prosper at university and beyond.

Whether you are new to us or are moving up from Senior School we believe that your time in Sixth Form should be a time of unparalleled excitement! Our aim is for each of our sixth form students to maximise their potential, leaving Bury Grammar School as confident, articulate, independent young adults fully prepared for the challenges of Higher Education and beyond.
 
The option to study A Levels alongside the Extended Project Qualification forms a strong academic foundation whilst allowing for Independent enquiry as the Sixth Form courses progress. This academic breadth is supplemented by a staggering range of additional academic challenges, trips and enrichment opportunities, each of them allowing you to broaden your outlook and build your confidence in a variety of settings. It is virtually impossible to list all such ventures, although participating in Sport, Music, Drama, Volunteering, Mentoring, Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh, Charity, The Sir Rhys Davis Law Competition, Public Speaking and House leadership to name a few, provide our sixth formers with an exceptional enrichment profile valued by universities and employers alike.
 
It is no surprise that Bury Grammar School sixth formers leave us as thoroughly well rounded, likeable, grounded, intellectually curious and ambitious individuals who thrive in a range of academic settings. Our students value the importance of aiming high, contributing to their
community and retaining a sense of fun, purpose and direction in everything they do. The Sixth Form environment at Bury Grammar School is a remarkably diverse, stimulating and supportive one, which provides experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
