Senior School Admissions to Bury Grammar School for entry in September 2023 are underway

Pupils are currently applying for a Year 7 place at Bury Grammar School (BGS) for entry in September 2023. BGS is proving to be a school that more and more families are choosing for their children and The School has grown considerably in the last few years.

Entry into our senior schools is highly competitive, with around 40% of our pupils coming from BGS Primary Division at Year 7 and around 60% from other schools.

This makes for the perfect mix of pupils from different backgrounds, all of whom have one very important thing in common: a thirst for learning. We understand that pupils joining us from other schools will have had different learning experiences as juniors and we are looking for potential as well as the ability to thrive within the academically challenging environment of our senior schools.

Here are some important dates regarding the admissions process:
• Complete your application form by Friday 16th December 2022
