Year 7–Year 10

Children usually join the Senior School in the Autumn term of Year 7 or 9, although entry is possible to other year-groups or at other times of the school year, dependent on the availability of spaces.

Entrance assessments for entry in September 2018 were held in January 2018. Please contact Hollie Matthews on 0117 933 9885 or e-mail to discuss the possibility of making a late application. 

If you are interested in your son or daughter joining BGS in September 2019, you can register your interest with the Admissions Office, request a prospectus online, or book a visit to BGS.

For 2018 entry, the Entrance Examinations consisted of:

Year 7: Verbal Reasoning and Problem-solving papers, and a creative writing task

Year 9: Papers in English, Mathematics and Science and a Modern Language (ML) linguistic competency test

As part of the entry process, alongside the examinations, we also consider a reference provided by your child’s current school and all Year 7 candidates are invited to meet with a member of staff to discuss their hobbies, interests and school work. Details of this appointment will be sent following your Year 7 application.

If you are interested in a scholarship or a bursary for your child, you can find details of the application and assessment process on our Fees and Bursaries page and Scholarships page.
