Outstanding Higher Education Success!

Outstanding Higher Education Success!

Bury Grammar School students are celebrating exceptional university successes. Following the stellar A Level results we are thrilled that our Sixth Formers have secured places at top universities on highly competitive courses. 

At the time of reporting 55% of our Sixth Formers have secured places on courses at the prestigious Russell Group universities and over 65% in the Top 20 group of UK universities. In addition to these headlines, 94% of our students have secured a place at their Firm or Insurance universities with 74% achieving the grades to meet the offer of their Firm (first) choice university. 

This level of success in Higher Education applications comes as a result expert guidance, personal knowledge of our students and intelligent strategy. Our Sixth Formers are lucky to be supported by an expert Sixth Form team who most importantly ensure that every student is placed on the right course for their professional ambitions and academic strengths. 

In an evolving Higher Education landscape, two of our students have been successful in acquiring places on highly sought after Higher Level apprenticeships in accountancy and retail. 

In the first year where the majority of courses were the reformed linear qualifications and university outcomes were a little uncertain, a number of our students ‘traded up’ through adjustment and were offered places on more competitive courses after receiving their results. 

A hallmark of our Sixth Form is the highly personal advice and attention our students receive during the UCAS application process. This combined with small tutorials, a wealth of knowledge in the Sixth Form team and a lot of hard work from our students have once again resulted in a very happy group of Sixth Formers who are looking forward to their next chapter beyond BGS!
