The School Captains and Prefects at Bury Grammar School for 2024 - 2025

15 May 2024
School News

A tradition of leadership and excellence has flourished for centuries at Bury Grammar School, embodied in the roles of the School Captains and School Prefects. These important roles, steeped in history and prestige, are not just titles, but a testament to the School's commitment to nurturing leaders who are ready to make a meaningful impact both within the School and in the wider community. 

The tradition of student leadership at Bury Grammar School dates to 1595 and perhaps even further. The Head Girl role dates to 1906, when this award was given to Emma Sutcliffe. Emma's name, along with the names of all previous Head Girls who followed, is etched in gold leaf in the Roger Kay Hall. Likewise, in the Main Hall, Senior Boys’ campus, the School Captains’ names are proudly displayed and date back to as early as 1595 when R.Greenhalgh was School Captain. 

Along with their history, these roles carry significant responsibilities and privileges within our school community. 

Over the years, the roles of School Captains and Prefects have evolved, but their core purpose has remained the same: to serve as exemplary models of the School's values, including Scholarship, Character, Enrichment, and Partnership. 

We hope this occasion marks a moment of immense pride for the new Senior Prefect team as they formally represent our school. 

The School Captains have a distinguished record of both academic and extracurricular achievements, and are selected for their ability to lead, inspire and unite the student body. This role is not only a prestigious honour, but also a significant responsibility, as the School Captain represents the School at official events, leads the student body and plays a key role in shaping the School's culture and spirit. 


We are proud to share with you the Bury Grammar School Senior Prefect Team for the academic year 2024-25.

Mrs Anderson, Principal, told us, 

“These roles are so much more than titles; they are a testament to the School's enduring legacy of leadership, character, and community. These positions carry with them many years of history and prestige as we continue to shape the leaders of tomorrow, ensuring that the spirit of Bury Grammar School shines bright, now and for generations to come. The applicants have been impressive and the competition strong. Congratulations to this brilliant team who I am looking forward to working with over the next academic year.”
