Be Bury College Ready

Be Bury College Ready

The ‘Be Bury College Ready’ portal has been designed for Year 11 pupils to support with their transition from school to college and includes a wide range of online resources.

The portal launches on the Bury College website on: Monday 28th March.

From reading lists and workbooks, to example timetables and what to bring on a first day, there is a comprehensive range of resources to help pupils ‘Be Bury College Ready.’

The online resources also include course specific information which has been carefully put together by experienced tutors. These resources will give individuals a head-start to their studies and provide them with tasks, reading lists and useful information that they can complete prior to them starting at Bury College in the next academic year.

To access the Be Bury College Ready portal please visit: www.burycollege.ac.uk from Monday 28th March

February was LGBTQ+ History Month, and as part of our activities in school to promote and celebrate inclusion, we ran a competition with our students to design a new LGBTQ+ logo for our school. The theme for ‘The Proud Trust’ for LGBT+ month for 2022 was ‘The Arc is Long‘. A massive thankyou to all students who responded and contributed. We are delighted to now announce the winning design and the runners up.

New School PE Kit Launch

New School PE Kit Launch

In line with the school’s drive for excellence and following the change in uniform, we are now launching our new school PE kit. You will still see the Manchester Bee out of respect to our students who were at the MEN arena on the night of the 2017 bombing.

We appreciate these items can be expensive and we therefore suggest your child wears their existing kit for now and as they outgrow it, replace it with the new one. We would, however, ask that by the start of September 2023, all students are in the new PE kit.

From the 1st of March our kit supplier Ian Senior from SKkits will take over a shop on Market Street in Tottington as a base. This will be beneficial for several reasons. He will be on hand to give advice on sizing, carry stock for immediate sale on site and it will speed up delivery. He has also opened a THS online shop which can be found on the website https://shop.skkits.co.uk/tottington-high-school/
