The Infant School
Welcome to Bury Grammar Infant School!
BGS children love to learn. Our Infant School is a happy, friendly place where children have room to grow and thrive. We love to challenge our pupils to try exciting new things, search for answers, learning both inside and outside of the classroom, whatever the weather! Our children are encouraged to be individuals, able to express their unique characters and personalities. We firmly believe that every child has talent and our learning environment and experienced staff bring out the very best in our pupils.
The Infant School facilitates confident, active learners, supporting children to believe in themselves and in their own abilities, going on to take their place in the world. We promote a love of learning from the very earliest age and aim to unlock the potential of all our pupils. High expectations support our pupils to make excellent progress. We recognise that the partnership that exists between School and home is at the heart of every child’s success, communication is key. Purpose built classrooms and spacious outdoor play areas help develop understanding and sense of discovery. Our talented specialist staff ensure that the children’s innate curiosity is fully stimulated and personal development and learning is central to their day.
Exploring the world around us is extremely important and our pupils make the most of the many opportunities on offer. A wide variety of educational visits organised throughout the year inspire and excite the children’s natural spirit of enquiry and perfectly complement the School curriculum. Physical challenge and creative development are vital for young children. Our specialist teachers including those for Sport, Music, IT and Modern Foreign Languages fully utilise our purpose built resources including our Infant Sports Hall, Music Room and the central Octagonal Hall.
Smooth transition into the Junior School is well supported: children are fully equipped to move on to the Boys’ and Girls’ Junior Schools, taking with them a secure academic foundation and enthusiasm for learning of all kinds.
Our Infant School really is a spectacular learning environment for our youngest pupils, whose futures hold so much promise.
The teachers, support staff and I very much look forward to meeting with you when you come to visit.

'' Putting our son into BGS Infant School was the best decision we have made. As a parent it is so important to know he is happy and secure at school every day. So many of our family and friends have noticed his increase in confidence which we know is down to the staff at school. Thank you BGS! ''
