Dear Parents / Carers
Your child is either studying triple (separate) science or combined trilogy science. Our exam board is AQA. We would strongly recommend the purchase of the Oxford Revise revision materials to aid them in their revision. These resources provide key information of all the topics that will need to be revised for the GCSE exams and also provide retrieval questions and exam style questions. Furthermore, there are maths booster skill activities. These resources will help students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills needed to improve their progress and attainment in their examinations.
We can order the revision guides shown below at reduced prices (50% discount). Combined Science £9. Triple Science Biology £4. Triple Science Chemistry £4. Triple Science Physics £4.
Please select which product(s) you would like and pay online via SCOPAY by 19/11/2021. You will need to select the guide for the correct Science course (combined science or biology, chemistry and physics separately) and the correct tier of entry that your child is aiming for (higher or foundation).

Year 11 School Leavers can start working as an Apprentice from 1st July 2021, so now is the perfect time for students to create their CVs, apply to jobs and attend interviews ahead of securing a full-time job.
Apprenticeships are positions of employment, therefore students must apply to a live job vacancy to be considered. Here at Bury College we have a number of live vacancies with companies we partner with, you can view these vacancies by following this link:
Additionally, students can apply for Apprenticeships directly with employers or with other providers. To view a list of local vacancies, follow the link below, enter your postcode and select your preferred industry from the menu.
*Bury College partner employers choose to take students aged 18+ for this subject, however students can still apply for a job in Health and Social Care externally and then join the course at Bury College if they are aged 16+ – For further information please contact 0161 280 8200.
