​​​​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.

  • The academic results of Brisbane Grammar School's 2017 graduates are representative of the consistently excellent outcomes achieved by BGS students over the 26 years the OP system has operated in Queensland. A median of OP4 is a key highlight, showcasing the extraordinary consistency and depth of the cohort. This median has been attained only once previously (in 2014).​​

  • BGS' founding mission in 1868 was to provide a broad liberal education to the young men of Queensland. The value of this legacy has never been greater or more relevant than in a 21st century belonging to those who master diverse skills in critical and creative thinking, in collaboration and teamwork, and in communication and character.​

  • Today at Senior School assembly, the 2018 School and Harlin House Prefects were inducted. The occasion provided Headmaster Anthony Micallef with the opportunity to examine the topic of leadership and the important role senior students play in developing the culture at BGS. This year's School Captain Marcus Ray then delivered an address, revealing his vision for the Class of 2018. The speech received a standing ovation. Click to read the transcript.​
