A world of opportunities

BGS is known for helping its students achieve excellent academic results but we offer much more than qualifications.

Want to see more? Take a look at our 360 Sixth Form video (best viewed on a mobile device in a VR headset).

We are a co-educational school where you will learn to see your fellow students as peers and collaborators, studying, working and socialising together, just as you will in the world beyond school. Trips, clubs and activities will give you the chance to develop the life skills you’ll need to thrive after you leave us. 

The Sixth Form is an important opportunity for you to develop the responsibility, self-discipline and independence you’ll need in adult life. You’ll have the chance to take on leadership roles – as a prefect, peer mentor or helping to run a club for younger students – and you’ll be expected to take responsibility for your own learning, managing your workload and making the best use of your free lessons. In return, you’ll have the freedom to spend time socialising with friends in the JCR or to head down to the Triangle to grab a coffee. 

Outside of the classroom, our size means that whatever your interests, there’ll be a club or activity to suit you. Whether it’s taking part in sport, dance, drama or music, the DofE Award, or heading off on an expedition overseas, there are lots of opportunities to spend time doing something you enjoy with friends. These provide an important balance to your academic studies, as well as the opportunity for a lot of fun and the chance to make memories which will last long after you’ve left BGS. You’ll also gain important skills, such as team work and communication, plus the confidence of knowing you can set yourself a challenge and rise to it, all of which will ensure that you leave us well prepared for your future, be that university, a Gap Year, or the world of work.
