Information for parents

Parent quote_1

At Bradford Grammar School (BGS) we pride ourselves on creating a happy environment where pupils can thrive and flourish. We understand that above all well being is a prerequisite of academic excellence, and the emphasis we place on pastoral care, student welfare and the value of our parents is integral to who we are.

This page provides information helpful to BGS parents. The useful links below include our up to date contact list for all teaching staff,  sports fixtures, examination timetables, policies, case studies that show what makes BGS so special from pupils and parents – and much more.

We have a very active BGS Parents Association (BGSPA) and hope you will find the information in the BGSPA section useful. If you would like to become involved with the BGSPA in any capacity, please email parentsassociation@bradfordgrammar.com

We are always happy to discuss any concerns raised by parents. If you need to speak to a member of staff, simply email him or her. You will also find an interactive version of the list below. If there is more information you would like us to list on the parents section please contact marketing@bradfordgrammar.com

 

Parent Zone

Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

The information available ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’ Parent Info is a collaboration between the child protection command of the National Crime Agency (CEOP) and Parent Zone that has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents and is focused on the impact of digital technologies on families.
