A sense of community

The BGS Friends bring Senior School parents, friends and family together for social occasions such as the Pot Luck Suppers, Quiz Night, the Parents’ Ball, and the Summer Sizzle.

These are not intended as fundraising events although any profit is returned to the School as grants for a wide range of items and activities. 

The Friends also join up their counterparts in BGS Infant and Junior School – the BGS Friends I&J – to arrange an annual whole school social event. The next event is the BGS Spring Social in March 2020.

Details of upcoming events are included in the weekly email. If you have a question about the BGS Friends or would like to be involved, please e-mail
