Rochdale Observer - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

OUNDED in 1748, with an aim to bring the heart of God to the heart of learn­ing, Bury Church of Eng­land is a school that has a global vi­sion.

In fact, the school motto of “Luceat Lux Ves­tra” seeks to en­cour­age ev­ery­one to ‘let your light shine’. The school be­lieves in high stan­dards and ex­cel­lence – al­ways pro­mot­ing the arts, sport, pupil lead­er­ship, as well as life-long learn­ing. This is all summed up by three words that are key to the school: Be­lieve, Achieve, In­spire.

The high school wants pupils to be­lieve in them­selves and to know that God be­lieves in them. Be­cause of this, stu­dents can achieve the very best that they can in their aca­demic sub­jects, as well as in other as­pects of life. This aca­demic suc­cess sits along­side an ethos to take in­spi­ra­tion by those around them, as well as in­spir­ing oth­ers to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in the world – to be the change they want to see. in 2016-17. In 2016 the school was rated as ‘good’ by Of­sted and in 2017 it was rated as ‘Out­stand­ing’ by its Statu­tory In­spec­tion of Angli­can and Methodist Schools.

The school holds the lead­er­ship mark from the Prince of Wales Teach­ing In­sti­tute and the In­ter­na­tional School’s Award from the Bri­tish Coun­cil.

Mean­while, the an­nual par­ent and pupil sur­veys speak vol­umes about the school’s rep­u­ta­tion – each one demon­strat­ing that the school is highly val­ued, very ef­fec­tive and that its pupils chil­dren en­joy com­ing.

With a fixed Head of Year in Year 7, Bury Church of Eng­land High in­vests in cre­at­ing a smooth tran­si­tion, which be­gins when a place is awarded and runs through to the end of Year 7. To find out more about the high school, prospec­tive par­ents and their chil­dren should stop by its open evening on Thurs­day Septem­ber 14, from 6pm till 9pm.
