A Church of England Academy with the vision to empower all students to let their light shine.

Careers Programme

At Bury Church of England High School we strive to ‘create better communities, transforming lives for good’ so that our pupils leave us well equipped to make a positive impact in society.

Our careers programme aims to:

  • support pupils’ interests
  • highlight pupils’ strengths
  • raise aspirations
  • enable pupils to make informed decisions about their future


We know that it is essential our pupils are given lots of opportunities to find out about their Post-16 options. One way in which we aim to do this is by providing high quality careers education and we understand that it has a critical role to play in our curriculum and in the extra-curricular activities we provide.

In January 2018 the Government introduced ‘The Gatsby Benchmarks’. The 8 benchmarks focus on improving careers guidance and education for all young people. At Bury Church we are committed to meeting these benchmarks for our young people and we are working with lots of different agencies to enable us to do this.


Bury Church has an ever expanding, rich and varied careers programme; that includes:

  • meeting industry experts, colleges and universities
  • dedicated career days which are delivered through our Deeper Learning Day programme
  • 1-2-1 careers advice and guidance
  • an array of trips and visits throughout the year
  • World of Work Day Mock Interview Evening
  • mentoring programmes

and much more!


As we continue to develop our careers provision, we would welcome any support from local organisations/ businesses, colleges and further/ higher educational institutes. If you are interested in supporting our young people you can find out more information here.
