County Upper Campus

County Upper Logo

Success at the Bury St Edmunds All-Through Trust 13-18 County Campus is built on a strong partnership between teachers, parents, students and governors; a partnership which flourishes in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect, where every individual is known and valued.

You can find out more about our values and work in our brochure and prospectus.

We are very proud that our young people feel secure and happy and enjoy coming to school and that our "can do" attitude ensures that our students achieve excellent results at all levels of ability: results which reflect, and frequently exceed, their potential.

Going All-Through
This is a time of great change in education nationally. While other schools locally are adjusting to their recent move to a two-tier system, our schools are already established and very confident with the forward looking All-Through system. As a result, all the schools in our Trust are able to focus solely on our core mission of helping every pupil to reach his or her potential by providing a seamless education from 4-19.

Any child in Year 4 who is not already in our system can choose to move into the All-Through Trust. Indeed, parents with children of all ages are very welcome to attend one of our open events and/or to have an individual tour. To find out what you need to do and how to get an application form visit the admissions page.

GCSE Results 2019GCSE Results 2019

Percentage gaining level 4+ in both English and mathematics: 75%

Mrs Neale said, “We are delighted with these results and right across the ability range students have done themselves proud. A quarter of all grades are 7s, 8s and 9s and, amongst the top performing students are Rose Bainbridge and Jacob Cook who both achieved eight grade 9s and an A grade in additional mathematics. Once again, our policy of students taking the rigorous English Baccalaureate, a creative subject and a wide range of extra-curricular activities has proven to be the right one. I thank the staff who do such an excellent job and congratulate all the students: they certainly deserve to celebrate their achievements today.”

'A' Level Results


Number of candidates: 122

A* - E pass rate: 99.4%

A* - C pass rate: 82%

A*/A pass rate: 25%

Head Teacher, Vicky Neale said, “it is always rewarding to see a group of young people rightly excited about moving onto the next phase of their lives and, once again, our students have achieved what they need to do just that. They have done extremely well across the ability range and 25% of all grades are A*/A. Five students will take up places at Oxford and Cambridge this year, while three girls have secured, equally sought after, degree apprenticeships two with international computing companies and the third for engineering with BAE systems. Amongst the top performers are Eddie Wilkinson with A*s in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics and Emma Le Poidevin with A*s in Art, French and History. I thank the staff for all they do to provide a well-rounded education for all our students and our parents for their support. On behalf of their teachers and tutors, I congratulate the students and wish them every success for the next phase of their lives.”
