​​​​ABOUT

Underpinned by values of endeavour, learning, respect, leadership and community, the Brisbane Grammar School purpose is to educate boys by nurturing their intellectual, physical, and emotional wellbeing to become thoughtful, confident men of character who contribute to their communities.

An independent, non-denominational day and boarding school for boys, located in Spring Hill, BGS caters for 1700 students. Complementing extensive extracurricular and academic programs, the student wellbeing program represents an integral element of the BGS mission.

  • ​As well as taking a look back at the School's 150 year journey, this summer 2018 edition of Grammar News contains a fantastic blend of stories focused on Old Boys and current students.​ Find out what our students have achieved in the Arts, in sport, at home in public purpose initiatives and abroad as global citizens. Hear from the Old Boys' Association, farewell the Class of 2017 and learn about an incredible family connection to BGS that dates back six generations to the School's foundation 150 years ago. And plenty more.​​

  • ​​​Brisbane Grammar School thanks its donors for their generosity during 2017.​ Hear from Board of Trustees Chairman Howard Stack, Headmaster Anthony Micallef, and bursary recipient Raziq Qasimi '14 in the 2017 BGS donor thank you video.​​

  • BGS boarding is set to benefit from a $657,000 donation (500,000 USD) from Old Boy Matt McLennan '86 – a significant first step in the long-term redevelopment and refurbishment plans for Harlin House. He hoped his donation would not only contribute to improving the boarding experience for students, but also encourage others to contribute to the campaign to upgrade the overall boarding facilities at the School.​

  • ​The BGS War Memorial Library will soon undergo an extensive upgrade, with enhancements set to transform the War Memorial Gardens and Library precinct into a focal sacred point and student social space at the heart of the School entrance.​
