From their first lesson aged four, to eighteen and looking ahead to university and the wider world, at BGS we support each child on their educational journey. Inspiring a love of learning and with a huge range of opportunities in and out of the classroom, every child can flourish here.
The curriculum: The Infant curriculum covers all the requirements of the National Curriculum. Lessons are linked in to a topic-based curriculum, which allows the children to explore a particular area while linking the subjects into a topic. In the Junior School children enjoy a breadth of education that stretches far beyond the National Curriculum. In the Senior School and Sixth Form students enjoy choice and opportunity. They can discover their strengths through a wide range of optional subjects, within a curriculum that encourages them to realise their potential, explore their ideas and take their learning as far as they can go. In the Sixth Form students have the opportunity to take the Extended Project Qualification alongside their ‘A’ levels. The curriculum is supported by an extensive co-curricular programme that includes activities such as Photography, Samba Band, Cookery, various sports and many more.
Scholarships and bursaries: A wide range of scholarships including Academic, Creative and Performing Arts, and Sport are available for entry into Year 7, Year 9 and Lower Sixth. For bursaries, families with a low or limited income can apply for a means-tested bursary through our Schools’ Assisted Places Scheme.
Visit: Come and discover for yourself what makes BGS such an exciting and enjoyable place to learn, make friends, and begin life’s adventure.
