A UK Top Ten Best Value Independent School

We are respected and admired as an outstanding school at ease with excellence. We know that choosing a school is a life-changing decision for you and your family, and one that can be both exciting and daunting in equal measure. We are proud to offer an outstanding education as well as being ranked by ‘The Daily Telegraph’ as one of the UK’s top ten value for money independent schools, so you can feel confident that you are making the right choice for your son or daughter.

  • Recognised as having the highest University admission points in West Yorkshire with well over half of our outstanding A Level results graded A* or A (2016).
  • In 2016 a record breaking 46 per cent of GCSEs were awarded grade A* and 71 per cent of all exams taken were awarded A* or A grades, well over three times higher than the national average and the best co-educational results in West Yorkshire.
  • Outside the classroom sport plays a fundamental part of a broad, well-rounded education for girls and boys, building character, camaraderie and school spirit.
  • Arts subjects may be under threat nationally, but they are thriving at BGS where the School embraces and supports the arts through music, drama and theatre studies.

Request a prospectus today or sign up to a forthcoming Open Event to get a taste of what we can offer you.
