Education is an adventure and is treated as such at BGS

The enthusiasm and excitement shared by our staff and pupils prepare young people for the world beyond the classroom.

Senior School


By blending our traditional values and heritage with our modern curriculum and first-class facilities we provide an education that promotes discovery, fulfilment and life-changing experiences.

This distinct style of education ensures our pupils remain grounded and modest even when they achieve great things.
