Christian Values

Our Christian faith is fundamental to what we do in a church school, yet we do not often stop to think how that faith directly impacts on the way we ‘do school’. The school motto of “Luceat Lux Vestra” or “Let your light shine” is central to what we are about as a learning community.

Our ‘Believe, Achieve, Inspire’ approach is all about putting the teaching of Jesus into practice. Jesus explained that the reason He had come was so that people “may have life in all its fullness” To embrace life to the full, young people need to believe in themselves, in God’s goodness and purpose for them, and that they can make a positive difference in this world. To enjoy that fullness of life, they need to achieve the best qualifications of which they are capable, the life skills to engage with the wider world with confidence and a sense of being at peace with God and themselves. To experience the breadth of that fullness they need to inspire others by their gifts and abilities, with their vision and passion and to join them in the adventure of life. In short, we are called to enable them to ‘Let their light shine before people that people may see their good work and give glory to their Father in heaven’.

Our role is to bring the heart of God to the heart of learning through what we teach and share with our young people during their time at Bury CE High School. It is also for us to seek to aspire to demonstrate the values associated with ‘Believe’, ‘Achieve’ and ‘Inspire’ in such a way that we live out in our learning community what experiencing life in all its fullness looks like so it is evident to everyone associated with our school. We all need to let our light shine so that Bury CE High School is a beacon for the kingdom of God in our community, bringing the heart of God to the heart of learning.
