All Faiths Welcome

I should like to welcome you to the website of Bury Catholic Preparatory School. BCPS children are bright and inquisitive individuals, each with unique abilities, interests and aspirations. They have exceptional opportunities at this school – for personal development, adventure and achievement in many directions. We encourage their curiosity and imagination at every stage of school life, and provide important foundations for a love of life and learning in this formative period. BCPS is a successful and dynamic school with high standards and expectations. We are interested in education in the fullest sense, and seek to provide a proper balance of academic excellence, fun and activity through small classes, a broad range of extra-curricular activities and wholly committed staff. We value the quality of our relationships with parents and children, which are grounded in respect, trust and honesty. There is so much more that I could tell you about BCPS and the wonderfully engaging people who make the School the very special place that it is today – but it is far better, of course, for you to see and feel this for yourselves at first hand. Whilst I am sure that you will enjoy browsing the pages of our website and gaining insights into life at BCPS, I do hope that you will also come and visit in person; you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

Headteacher, MA PGCE
