    No - I go to Holy Cross. But my sis who went to Bury Grammer said that they were major rivals. They are supposed to be one of the elite in Manchester along with King Davids I think

    Its so you can get more content covered in lessons. You get Free preiods anyway so you'll get used to it.
    I did English Lit - you might have one of my teachers. I had mrs.mafi and mr.weatherall. There is also a teacher who came from Oxford - mr.Rigby along with some others.
    French - I've heard the teacher isn't supposed to be "all that" - Madame Towell.
    My mates took Maths and Media and they loved it -

    At the college I did my A-level physics at (my sixth form couldn't offer it), I had two lessons a week. One was 2 hours long on a Tuesday morning and the other one was 3 hours long on a Thursday afternoon (it finished at 5pm!).
