THE COMRADESHIP OF YOUTH
As we approach the 350th anniversary of the birth of Roger Kay, we reflect upon his legacy to The Bury Grammar Schools. Roger Kay knew that he had been fortunate in life and his generous bequest ensured that future generations, who might not be so fortunate, should be blessed with the priceless opportunity of a fine education.
Following in the wake of countless students before them, and with grateful thanks to the early benefaction of our Founders, our recent leavers will soon take the next exciting step in their careers as they depart for their chosen university. They will go well prepared. Our students have enjoyed an education which has focused upon each individual and encouraged them to make the very most of their abundant talents. They have been given many opportunities for personal development and they leave us as mature, responsible, confident and well balanced young adults. They will embrace university life with a positive attitude and a quest for knowledge which has been instilled in them at BGS. They are the workforce of the future and we wish them well.
Wherever our students go and whatever they do in life, they will share the bond of an education at BGS and the abiding memories of their schooldays, of friendships formed, of favoured staff, of personal triumphs and of many shared experiences. At the moment they are looking to the future, but in the years to come they will reflect upon their years at BGS. We extend a warm invitation to all former students, staff and friends of BGS to visit us: you will surprised by the many changes which have taken place over the years, but you will recognise the familiar spirit of BGS and remember the comradeship of youth.
