PROUD pupils showcased their school's success as record numbers turned out to their open events.

Visitors were given a tour of Bury Grammar School by existing students as part of the annual Open Events.

The entire school rallied round to give visitors an idea of what everyday life is like.

Prospective pupils and their parents took part in a range of activities, including a 'Guess the Medieval Artefacts' game in History.

The Geography department transported visitors to the Seven Wonders of the World using a 'green screen'.

Meanwhile the Religious Studies department offered families an array of cultural foods from the six major world religions.

They were even given the opportunity to assist with experiments in the Science department, such as the dissection of a cow's heart.

Year 12 students Emily Wilson, Sophie Parker and Lucy Leech put together a report of the Open Events activities which said: "Visitors enjoyed putting their creative skills to the test in the English department by contributing to an ongoing story and creating their own eccentric, personalised name badges.

"Amongst all the educational activities, our talented Pupil Ambassadors presented their extra-curricular skills through sport matches and beautiful performances from our choirs and music groups - truly portraying the myriad of opportunities that Bury Grammar Schools bring."
