Dear Parents

Thank you for your interest in our school.

This is a church school, not only in name but also in character. We are proud of its Christian heritage and ethos, and we hope that you will sense its special character in all your contacts with people here.

It is a caring school. Our small size and our pastoral organisation allow us to get to know our pupils very well, and to ensure that problems do not go unnoticed or unattended.

It is an inclusive comprehensive school. We accept pupils of all abilities and needs. Although we give priority to children of practising Christian families, we accept children of other faiths and none where vacancies permit.

It is a school which over time has consistently attained good results. We are usually one of the top high schools in the Bury league table, and our success encompasses our less able pupils as much as our most able.

It is a forward-looking school. We have a proud heritage stretching back over 250 years, but our focus is on the future. We are committed to providing the best education appropriate to the adults of the 21st century.
