Strategic Plan 2018-2022
As the twelfth Headmaster of the first independent boys school in Brisbane, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Brisbane Grammar School has an outstanding 150-year historical commitment to educating boys, which is expressed both in terms of academic outcomes and the development of lifelong learners. I hope throughout these pages you’ll discover the essence of a Brisbane Grammar School education and its capacity to provide your son with the best preparation for his future.
Our historical commitment to a broad liberal education continues to best prepare our boys for an exciting but complex world of change and diversity. As the world changes, we too as educators must continue to innovate to remain at the forefront of advancing teaching and learning practices.
In 2010 we opened our state-of-the-art integrated learning centre, The Lilley Centre. This magnificent building epitomises our School’s innovative spirit. Its learning spaces and powerful technologies enable rich, collaborative, real-world learning experiences; experiences which will help develop the abilities to think creatively, respond imaginatively, analyse critically and communicate effectively; essential skills for 21st century citizens.
Much learning at BGS happens beyond the classroom. Our extensive and balanced extracurricular program across sport, art, drama, music and a vast array of clubs and activities caters for those wanting to learn new skills and make new friends through to elite performers with the highest aspirations.
For many boys, our outdoor education program is a particular highlight if not an all-time favourite. This world-class facility with specialist staff offers a unique and transformative adventure experience.
Our student wellbeing program represents an integral element of our mission. The School is committed to a culture that fosters and inspires the ongoing development of resilient, responsible and happy individuals.
Students are challenged to rise to their best at BGS. We nurture individual talents in a caring and supportive environment, in which boys can flourish and grow into thoughtful and confident young men of character who contribute to their communities.
I invite you to explore our website, where you can also enrol online when you are ready.
