Our Mission and Aims

The BGS Mission
We aim high at Bristol Grammar School and are proud to do so, inspiring a love of learning, fostering intellectual independence, and promoting self-confidence and a sense of adventure amongst our young. We set our sights on excellence in everything we do.
Our purpose is to provide an exceptional education for all our pupils, developing in them a spirit of enquiry and independence of thought through high-quality teaching, warm pastoral care and broad-ranging intellectual, physical and cultural opportunities. We wish to encourage a mature sense of responsibility from an early age, forming well-rounded young people able to use their talents and leadership potential in the service of others, here and in their future lives.
Above all, we are committed to supporting our students so that every one of them may achieve their goals and leave BGS as confident, compassionate and ambitious young adults.


For every individual to:

  • achieve their full academic potential through a rich, stimulating and progressive learning experience
  • be prepared and motivated to contribute positively and compassionately to the world through the cultivation of our school spirit
  • flourish culturally, intellectually, morally, physically, emotionally and spiritually in a happy and nurturing environment through a wide range of far-reaching opportunities.
