Vision Statement

Inspired by our faith in Christ, we aim that each person should aspire to reach their full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Bury Catholic Preparatory School is a small community school in the heart of Bury which has a global outlook. Our approach to teaching and learning is responsive to international best practice and entirely attuned to the needs of the children in our care.

We are incredibly proud of our school and the happy, vibrant and purposeful community which has grown and thrived here for many decades. Indeed, Bury Catholic Preparatory School has been nurturing families for nearly a century.
We are a Catholic Preparatory School that is unapologetic in its approach to ensuring children receive a well-rounded education, ensuring that the values they learn in our school will go home with them and pervade their lives and their futures. We are open to all faiths, and children from many cultures attend our vibrant and exciting school. Our Catholic principles provide the bedrock of our mission to develop our pupils’ unique talents, challenging them to give of their very best in all that they do.
We focus on our children acquiring the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that they will need for the 21st century. In addition to balancing the academic, spiritual, cultural and sporting facets of Bury Catholic Preparatory School, we are proud that our children develop a sense of service to the community, both in school and beyond.

Our holistic curriculum encourages children to look after their bodies and their minds: academic rigour is enlivened by an emphasis on creative thinking, intellectual curiosity and purposeful reflection; physical exercise, music, drama and the arts give our children the opportunity to delight in movement, sound, and imagery.
We are very rightly proud of the “excellent in every category” report we achieved in our last ISI inspection and our academic success is underpinned by a strong Christian ethos and dedication to the welfare of every member of our school family. Our small classes ensure that children receive the care and individual attention needed to drive all facets of the school day.
BCPS is an extraordinary place, filled with outstanding people, doing astonishing things. Please join us for a chat and come and be a part of our family.
Kind regards
Mr Morton
