From the Headteacher

As we move into the final weeks of this calendar year, we have much to look forward to. There was a good deal of excitement in assemblies last week as we were treated to our first glimpse of this year’s show ‘We Will Rock You’. Needless to say, the quality of performance was outstanding, and we look forward to seeing the full show in the first week of December. Tickets are available here, but please hurry as they are selling fast!
Our ‘Celebration of Christmas’ takes place in St Edmundsbury Cathedral at 7pm on Tuesday 10 December. There will be performances from our finest musicians, alongside readings and carols, and a sense of the meaning and excitement of Christmas you would expect from this traditional coming together. The event is not ticketed, please just join us if you can.
Our alumni association, the Old Burians’, held a photography competition for current students earlier this year with the theme ‘Unseen Corners’. They challenged our students to submit a photograph of a corner of Bury St Edmunds which is usually overlooked. They had some quite stunning entries, and you can see the best of them in the Old Burians’ 2020 calendar. These cost £10 and are available through Student Services (please make cheques payable to the Old Burians’ Association), or directly from the Association (email Please note there is a small postal charge if you order direct from the Association.
With very best wishes,

Lee Walker
