Bury Grammar School for Boys



On Friday 19th May 2017 Bury Grammar School Boys hosted an U11 Girls' Football Festival. As part of the schools commitment as an ISFA Junior Hub School the festival aimed to promote girls football by bringing them together in a fun and friendly environment to develop their skills and experience a taste of competitive football. In addition to matches, the skills session, which proceeded the matches, aimed to give school teachers a number of progressive football activities that they could take back to their school and implement throughout PE and extra-curricular practices. The afternoon was a huge success with an abundance of talent on show and we would like to thank the schools and girls which attended. As part of the day a signed Manchester City Ladies shirt was presented to the 'Player of the Day' who displayed excellent skills, tactics and attitude.



On Friday 25th November Bury Grammar School hosted a 6-a-side competition for Junior Schools in the Greater Manchester and Cheshire area. The competition took place on their brand new state-of-the-art synthetic pitch. Ten teams entered in what was a fantastic competition. From the two pools of five teams Bury Grammar School and Cheadle Hulme School finished second in their groups qualifying for the Minor-Final and Manchester Grammar School and Altrincham Preparatory School topped their groups qualifying for the Major-Final. The overall winners of the competition were Altrincham Preparatory School who saw of a strong Manchester Grammar School in the final. Bury Grammar School beat Cheadle Hulme School to win the Minor-Final. The afternoon of football showcased the quality of Independent School football in the North West which is now thriving. In the new year the school will host further football festivals for U8's & U9's and also an U11's girls competition. 


On Friday 26th February 2016 Bury Grammar School Boys hosted the ISFA year 3/4 football festival. The day welcomed four schools from around the North West and allowed over 80 boys to participate in skills sessions and a tournament. The day begun with boys throwing themselves into four activity areas which were lea by FA Skills Coaches. Boys moved around the activities learning new skills and refining basics. The afternoon allowed for these skills to be transferred into game situations as boys took part in a tournament with each team playing each other. The focus of the day was participation, meeting new people, learning new skills and above all fair play.
