We did know that Darth Vader was from Bristol. We even know where he went to school... @OldBristolians #BGSFamily https://t.co/6ZW31P6Kle
At Bristol Grammar School our aim for your child is for them to leave BGS happy, confident and secure, equipped not just with qualifications but with the skills they need to make their way in the world.
The opportunities to gain these skills – such as teamwork, resilience, problem-solving, and communication – are embedded throughout our school. As a proudly co-educational school, we believe girls and boys learn best when they work alongside each other, learning to see each other as peers and collaborators just as they will be in the world beyond school.
Our broad and engaging curriculum will inspire a love of learning in your child and our talented and dedicated teaching staff are skilled in helping every child to do their best. We want all our pupils to look forward to coming to school, to relish the challenges on offer and to take advantage of the many opportunities and experiences BGS can provide. At the heart of ensuring your child enjoys their learning are the many opportunities to get involved, both in classroom activities and in an extensive programme of trips and visits. Regular theatre visits, field trips, cultural exchanges and study days provide exceptional opportunities for our pupils to step out of the classroom and bring their learning to life.
“It's not just about learning at BGS, it's about the facilities, like Failand. Whatever you're into you can go for it.”
“I am very glad I moved to BGS. There is a real community feeling to the School – everyone wants you to do well, and everybody is happy to help everybody else.”
“I am looking forward to moving up to the Senior School because there will be new subjects and lots of new people to be friends with.”
