While grades in public examinations are hugely important, we recognise that a good education is about more than academic results.

We want our pupils to develop broad interests, to be outward–looking and culturally aware. Academic studies are complemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities that are an important feature of life at BGS - embracing Sport, Music, Drama, Debates, Service to the Community and Outdoor Pursuits. Pupils are encouraged to pursue their interests and to explore and develop new ones.
