 Year 7 taster sessions

Those who are successful in securing a place in Year 7 will get the opportunity to attend our taster sessions, prior to accepting a place. These sessions give students a real flavour of what it is like to be a pupil here for a full day. Pupils will attend lessons in order to give them a true BGS experience. These are very enjoyable sessions and are very popular, so we recommend booking a place for your child as soon as you receive your invitation.
