Early Years


Learn Without Limits; All Faiths Welcome

As the acting headteacher, I have great pleasure in welcoming you to Bury Catholic Preparatory School. Our girls and boys learn without limits, have high aspirations and are encouraged to be curious, creative, bold thinkers, to take calculated risks and not to be afraid of making mistakes on the way to success. We are growing great minds and preparing children for a world that requires courage and flexibility. 

The Bury Catholic Prep. ethos and values pervade all that we do and we are dedicated to creating a happy, secure and purposeful environment in which young children can flourish. Academic standards are high, but we believe it is equally important to offer our girls and boys a rich educational experience with inspirational teachers who create a nurturing happy atmosphere for which Bury Catholic Prep. is renowned. We want each one of them to feel personally valued and to think of us as their second home. Sensitivity, mutual respect and kindness are key values throughout the school. 

At our Multi-faith School children spend fulfilling years here, developing a love of learning and close friendships. We will help them to become confident, independent, caring young people. As they move up the school we want to make sure they are thoroughly prepared for the next stage of their education and the top flight schools to which they win places.

It’s wonderful to be the head of such a vibrant, successful and forward-thinking school.
