About All-Through Education in Bury St Edmunds
Tollgate Primary, Horringer Court, Westley and County Upper are part of Unity Schools Partnership. The Partnership shares our vision of a strong all-round education for all and we are delighted to be part of this wider network of schools. Within this partnership, we continue to provide our very successful all-through approach to education in three phases. These phases cover the 4-9; 9-13 and 13-18 age ranges and fit more naturally with the personal development of the overwhelming majority of young people, so enabling them better to reach their potential.
The close working of our four schools ensures curriculum continuity and provides a huge range of extra-curricular experiences, including all-through subject days, a sport partnership and our big arts events at The Apex and the Theatre Royal. We are renowned for the supportive, happy, nurturing communities we foster, the high standards we achieve and the forward looking education we offer from nursery through to ‘A’ level.
Any student who is not already in our system, can move into our schools, especially at years 5 and 9 and for sixth form. To find out what you need to do and how to get an application form visit the admissions page. If you would like to discuss our approach and to meet us in person, do contact us. We look forward to welcoming you.

International School Award
We have held this award since 2007 and last summer we were required to do a full submission in order to be reaccredited. We were delighted to be given the award for a further three years commencing this September and will attend a special ceremony at the British Council when circumstances permit
We are very well known for the quality and number of music ensembles we run. Our wind band, swing band and chamber choir are amongst those with a national reputation.
All our year nine students are entered annually for this award in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine. Students can achieve bronze, silver or gold.
