About Bury Grammar School for Girls
Bury Grammar School is an independent grammar school in Bury, Greater Manchester, England, that has existed since c.1570. The headmaster is Richard Marshall. The previous headmaster, Reverend Stephen Harvey, retired after 7 years to take up a position at Newcastle Cathedral. The Headmistress of the Girls' School is Roberta (Bobby) Georghiou.
Bury Grammar School celebrates its Founders' Day on the Friday closest to 6 May (the Feast of St John before the Latin Gate), the date upon which Roger Kay, who re-founded the School with a generous bequest, specified the Trustees should meet annually to inspect the School. On this particular Friday, a procession leads from school through the major street of Bury to Bury Parish Church, led by the Combined Cadet Force (CCF). Since the CCF is attached to the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, a regiment with the Freedom of the Borough, the cadets are permitted to march with swords drawn, drums beating and colours flying. After a commemoration service, the pupils are awarded a half-holiday. Services for younger pupils are held simultaneously in the Roger Kay Hall (located in what is now the Girls' School), the Boys' School and the Boys' Preparatory School.
