Success at the Bury St Edmunds All-Through Education 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 prospectus and brochure.

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.

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.

Prince PhilipPrince Philip

Following the death of Prince Philip, a service of thanksgiving for his life was held in St Edmundsbury Cathedral.  Our Head Girl, Amy Winterbottom, read the epistle from St Paul’s Letter to the Romans with impressive dignity, solemnity, presence and understanding.

Following on their success in the Northern Language Championships in the autumn more students entered  the World Language Championships in March. We congratulate all for their efforts but particularly Phoebe Mallen, Yan Tan and Haojun Xiong in year nine who achieved Bronze and received their certificates this month.
