The following are comments made by students who joined BGS in the Sixth Form:
I really had no idea school life could be this enjoyable. I had wanted to come to Bradford Grammar for a change and I was primarily attracted to the fantastic facilities the school has to offer. I knew it was an exceptional school before I came, but perhaps not to the extent it really is! So far I have enjoyed every minute of being a student at Bradford Grammar, and I am so pleased I made the decision to come here. There is a great atmosphere in the Sixth Form Centre, and from the first day I came here I was made to feel welcome. It really is a fantastic community to be part of, and there are such positive vibes about the place.
I was really pleased to be able to get involved so quickly in the sports at Bradford Grammar. I was made to feel really welcome on the hockey and cross-country teams. Already I have competed in three cross-country events and played in more hockey matches than I can recall. I also attend the dance society which is held on Friday lunchtimes, even though I have never danced before! It’s great to be part of so many school clubs, and already I feel like I am part of the school.
I can remember on my first day feeling slightly apprehensive about whether I was going to fit in. Those feelings didn’t last long and by the end of the first week I felt like I’d been at the school for years. Everybody was so friendly and welcoming, and I have made some really good friends. The teachers were also very accommodating and I feel I adapted well to the new set-up. After the first couple of weeks my form tutor asked me how I was settling in and whether I was having any problems. I thought that was really reassuring and I feel I know I can seek his advice if ever I do have any troubles.
