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.

Sports AwardsSports Awards

We were delighted to be invited to the Gala Awards Evening as a finalist.  St Edmundsbury Cathedral was transformed for the occasion which was hosted by Lesley Dolphin from Radio Suffolk with Sally Gunnell, OBE as the guest of honour. It was just reward for our PE department when it was announced that, out of all the primary and secondary schools across the West of the county, we were the West Suffolk School of the Year for our sports provision.

DofE canoe expeditionDofE canoe expedition

Our large bronze, silver and gold contingent for 2017-2018 has already been inducted into the scheme. As the largest school group, we are continually looking for new ways in which students can complete the various sections of the award. This year, those on the silver scheme havebeen offered an opportunity to complete the expedition with a canoeing trip, rather than the conventional walk in the Peak District. At the end of the first full week, sixteen year eleven students spent the weekend canoeing from Granchester to Brandon, camping overnight by the river. 

Basketball successBasketball success

The East of England U17 Basketball Team won the national tournament in Manchester in September. We were very proud that a quarter of the team from this huge region are at County Upper. We congratulate Bradley Day, Jordan Boyd, Aaron S Nelson and especially, Ethan Price who is still aged fifteen.
