Support Bradford Grammar School
Our alumni are the greatest testament to the opportunities our School creates. Many continue to support the growth and success of BGS.
Bradford Grammar School pupils have gone on to achieve great things – Olympic champions Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Team GB Performance Analyst Dr Deborah Sides, actress Georgie Henley, Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey and artist David Hockney, to name a few – give a glimpse of where BGS could take you.
Old Bradfordians, maintain close links with the School, returning for performances and reunions, sharing careers advice, and becoming mentors for our pupils.
Many Old Bradfordians and friends of the School choose to support BGS through a range of means, from careers advice for current pupils to a financial contribution to the School. All support is gratefully received.
Historically, BGS was able to offer financial support to pupils through the Direct Grant Scheme followed by the Assisted Places Scheme. Since the government ended this funding in 1997, the School has been entirely responsible for offering financial support to deserving pupils.
Our long term aspiration is to build up a bursary fund to enable as many talented and academically able pupils as possible to receive an outstanding education at Bradford Grammar School, regardless of their financial circumstances.
We are proud to have a strong BGS community who share the School’s values and ambitions and we are grateful for all of the support that we receive.
All of our donors are invited to drinks receptions with the Headmaster, along with other ad hoc events throughout the year. Major donors’ names are added to our donor board, which is displayed in the main corridor of the School.
