About Bury Church of England High School

The school is full and annually oversubscribed with capacity for 830 pupils on roll. Parents tell us that they choose to send their children here mainly because of the school’s high academic standards, caring Christian ethos, orderly and work centred atmosphere, very good working relationships between staff and pupils and the emphasis we place on promoting the progress and achievement of the individual child. Parents are very supportive of the school.

We are proud of the school’s good practice and high standards of achievement. Like any school we also have our challenges, but through our collective efforts Governors, staff, parents and community partners are committed to improving the effectiveness of the school yet further. Our aim is to provide a high quality educational experience for our pupils as we help to prepare them for adulthood and lifelong learning.

We sustain high levels of attainment, which exceed national standards and expectations. Performance in the end of Key Stage 3 assessments is consistently good and GCSE results are well above local and national averages. We enjoy a very good local reputation and strong relationships with the Churches, Local Authority, community organisations, business, primary schools and colleges.

The school's Christian foundation dates back to 1748 and the present buildings opened in 1964 with a Sports Hall added in 2004 and further adaptations more recently. We occupy an open site including extensive lawns, playing fields and tennis courts close to Bury town centre.
