Bradford Grammar School believes in providing every opportunity for its pupils to embrace academic, sporting and creative excellence within an aspirational and caring environment. An environment in which happiness is the key to an individual’s success.

At ease with excellence

Our rich heritage, ethos and vision give BGS its unique character, which places pupils at the heart of our endeavours.

A centre of academic, sporting and creative excellence in our region and beyond, we inspire pupils to be the best that they can be.

These attributes are reinforced through our world-class curriculum, our rich co-curricular programme and our superb pastoral care across the Junior and Senior Schools and in the Sixth Form.

I enjoy the teachers and lessons and how everyone is friendly
and enthusiastic.

Junior School pupil

The School has taught me to seize every opportunity and believe in my own ability and how far it can take me.

Senior School pupil

It’s not just about academic excellence but ensuring you’re happy in what you study and achieve – because that’s just as important as passing exams.

Sixth Form student

Having a bursary at BGS made me value education that much more and really gave me motivation to maximise my potential.
