​​​​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.

  • ​Our BGS150 celebrations have officially launched. As a symbol of our 150-year history and connection​ with the community of Brisbane, this week the Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge have been lit up in Brisbane Grammar School's renowned light dark blue colours. The Story Bridge is representative of BGS' connection to Brisbane, named after prominent Old Boy John Douglas Story, who after graduating from BGS went on to become a distinguished Queensland public servant.​​

  • ​​The Great Public Schools' Association of Queensland officially launched GPS100: a year-long centenary celebration on Monday 19 February. 2018 marks 100 years of the spirit of fellowship, competition and creativity that enriches our community of students, Old Boys, parents, staff and friends across the nine member schools – a global community that extends far beyond the school gates.​


  • ​BGS graduate Stuart Moss beat 28,000 students to achieve the highest result on the 2017 QCS Test. Fellow student Cheng Zhang was the highest achieving international student. Josh Grice, Louis Backstrom and Daniel Harness were named Distinguished Academic Achievers. The latest BGS Old Boys were recognised at the 2017 Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) Achievement Awards.

  • 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).​​
