Sixth Form

BGS Sixth Form offers students an outstanding academic education, a greater sense of independence and the best possible preparation for university and later life.

The Sixth Form provides excellent teaching and learning resources to help students attain their potential, develop their skills and move forward with confidence. Independent study is crucial and the two learning zones in the modern Sixth Form centre allow this to take place either individually or in groups.

Our Sixth Form is totally unique: teaching takes place in small coeducational classes, enabling students to prepare for university, while all students are cared for in single sex pastoral groups.

Every student has a personal academic tutor who monitors performance, agrees targets and ensures best working practices are being followed. Academic results at A Levels have been consistently outstanding with the vast majority of students embarking upon their first choice course at some of the most prestigious universities in the country. Fortnightly tutorials, personal support and guidance for UCAS applications and university entrance from the highly experienced Sixth Form Team offer students the best possible opportunities to prosper at university and beyond.


"Having been at BGS for 13 years, I can wholeheartedly say that I owe so many of my successes to Bury Grammar School. The teaching and support I received in Sixth Form were second to none and the small class sizes meant that staff knew me as an individual. Sixth Form is hard work… but we had lots of fun along the way too!"
