This time of year brings with it a variety of emotions.  For many – a sense of relief as the demanding examination season draws to a close, for those saying ‘goodbye’ – a sense of nostalgia, and for all – a sense of excitement as the end-of-year activities and celebrations start in earnest.

There is a wonderfully eclectic mix of trips, visits and events taking place, and it includes the Year 11 Prom, the Year 7 Bushcraft residential adventure, the MFL trip to Paris, the Bury Schools Partnership Art Exhibition Launch at The Apex (29 June), the Year 8 and 9 residential trip to Brenscombe, the Year 12 Battlefields trip, the Summer Soiree (10 July), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (12 July), our Sports Day, the Duke of Edinburgh expedition and the departure of our World Challenge adventurers.

As ever, you can keep up-to-date with our students’ adventures and successes via our Facebook page and Twitter feed (links at top of page).


Summer Soirée:

Tickets are now available for our Summer Soirée taking place on Monday 10 July at 7pm.  You will have the opportunity to hear our major ensembles perform alongside our chamber ensembles and soloists. We will be celebrating a year of superb music-making, and saying farewell, and thank you, to those students for whom it will be their last King Edward’s Concert.  Tickets cost £5/4.


A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

Tickets are also now available for our summer production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, taking place on Wednesday 12 July at 7pm. This is an open air theatre event, so remember your blanket and picnic! Tickets are priced at £5, and include a programme and soft drink. We will have a traditional ice cream cart providing a selection of delicious ice creams for sale.


Come for a tour…

Since 1550, we have been known as ‘schola buriensis’ – the school of Bury St Edmunds. With the best GCSE results in a decade, our largest, most thriving Sixth Form, all the benefits of older students working with younger students, top academic staff teaching the full age range, and excellent, purpose-built facilities, we have a lot to share with you.

We are feeling hugely proud as we near the end of our first year as a full 11-18 secondary school, and we would love you to come on a tour to find out why.

To arrange a tour please telephone Debbie Dunning on 01284 761393 (Ext 252), or email
