​​​​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.

  • ​​​Diversity is fundamental to a Brisbane Grammar School education. This edition of Grammar News includes an eight-page feature that looks at how diversity, in its various forms, has played and continues to play a vital role at BGS. The cover photo is of the inspirational Ngo family, who came to Australia as refugees and have become a true Australian success story.

  • ​The Brisbane Grammar School Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that Professor John Humphrey has been appointed as the new Deputy Chairperson of the Board and will succeed Mr Howard Stack as Chairperson of the Board of Trustees when he retires later this year.​

  • ​Today at Senior Assembly, BGS recognised National Sorry Day ahead of National Reconciliation Week next week. This is a significant day in the School’s calendar when the School not only acknowledges and recognises members of the Stolen Generation, but also provides an opportunity for our Indigenous students to share their stories with the BGS community.​

  • ​​As part of the 2019 BGS Art Show, the School community has the opportunity to bid on a pair of BGS cufflinks specially designed by Old Boy Ben Hodges '90. Hodges, a prominent jeweller who once helped create a ring for Ringo Starr of The Beatles, handcrafted the intricate BGS cufflinks in diamond, titanium and solid 18 carat white gold.
