​​​​ABOUT

Underpinned by values of learning​, leadership, endeavour, respect 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 best-performing academic and co-curricular students were recognised and the graduating Class of 2019 farewelled at the 2019 BGS Speech Day in November. The event also provided an opportunity to hear from the new Chairman of the Board of Trustees Professor John Humphrey, Headmaster Anthony Micallef, outgoing School Captain Nick Miller, and Guest Speaker The Honourable Jackie Trad.​

  • ​Engineer and BGS Old Boy Nicholas Salmon ’12 is still coming to terms with being announced as Queensland’s newest Rhodes Scholar. Next year, he will relocate to Oxford University where he will undertake a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) Engineering Science.​

  • ​Brisbane Grammar School volunteers and donors were recognised at the annual Celebrating Our Community function on Wednesday 16 October. Six Betty Howell Awards were presented to volunteers for their service and contribution to the School. BGS has a vibrant volunteer community who carve time out of their increasingly busy schedules to build something that money can't buy.


  • ​Passionate Brisbane Grammar School teacher Michelle Ragen is instilling the importance of learning and community service in the next generation of young men at the School. She has been named a finalist in this year’s Queensland College of Teachers TEACHX Excellence in Teaching Award.
