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.

Charity Concert 2020
Our Charity Team, supported by the Wind Band and Big Band members who have been able to rehearse this term, compiled a fun concert to raise money towards Charity 2020. Forty minutes of fun reminded us that concerts will come again and we are grateful to the Sixth Form, led by Alex Knock and Alfie Roberts, for producing it.
School Council's Gratui-Tree
Our School Council continue to meet and this month it encouraged each tutor group to submit a comment expressing gratitude to someone at this time. In keeping with the Christmas season, we all reflected on what we have to be grateful for and the Council put the messages onto a tree that was displayed in the main student foyer.
We thank Mrs Middleditch and the Council members for their work and for reminding us that, even at this time, we have much to be grateful for.
Once again this Christmas our community has come together to give generously to our chosen charities. By giving to others, we have helped many lives, especially young lives, so much more in need of support than we can imagine. We have demonstrated the true message of Christmas whilst also having fun.
It would have been very easy to cancel our charity activity this Christmas. However, so many charities have had a really difficult year and our school’s charity event each year is an integral part of everything County Upper stands for.
