Junior Hoc Age offers the chance to revisit and reflect upon the disparate and wide-ranging opportunities that our pupils embrace on a daily basis at Clock House. This edition takes a final glance back over the academic year to celebrate the fantastic successes of many of our pupils.

Our committed journalists have researched, written and delivered a multitude of articles for your perusal. Articles featuring in this edition are an eclectic amalgamation of exciting activities including fantastic residential trips; a summary of the recent Brownlee Triathlon; the super General Knowledge Interschool Competition success; a look back at the Clock House Ski Trip and much more …”

Our Summer Hoc Age: Senior and Sixth Form magazine features news from across the school including BGS ‘Challenges’ ‘the Arts’ ‘Community’ and ‘Life’ with an added supplement, this time featuring  ‘BGS sport’ detailing our NEW vision for BGS Sport.

Another factor for sporting success is having the right facilities in place, so we’re delighted to see the creation of our new multi-million pound sports development over the next year. The investment will create new cricket lanes, netball and tennis courts, astro turfed hockey pitches and a new sports barn. The development is part of BGS’s new sporting vision which will also see us welcoming more high calibre coaches to the BGS team.

 I firmly believe that, regardless of age, gender or ethnicity, sport can be enjoyed by all. Its reach is unrivalled, gives real foundations in life, and promotes universal values that improve achievement and behaviour. We hope you agree that the future for sport at Bradford Grammar School is very exciting, and we will continue to give pupils opportunities to be active and competitive which is crucial to developing well-rounded young people.”

Oliver Rogers, Director of Sport

“At the end of the year, we reflect on what we have achieved and contemplate the shape of things to come as we continue to take BGS forwards. Significantly, we also say goodbye to our upper Sixth Form leavers, they are a great bunch and we all wish them every success and happiness in the next chapter of their lives.

Hoc Age.”

Simon Hinchliffe, Headmaster
