​​​​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 Brisbane Grammar School Class of 2018 achieved 40 OP1s and 67 OP1 equivalents, with a median OP5. This broadly equates to an ATAR median of 93, placing BGS among the best-performed schools in Australia. Four students achieved the maximum possible national ATAR of 99.95 and a further five students achieved 99.90.
  • ​​This special edition celebrates our 150-year anniversary. Some of the stories inside include: a six-page feature on some of the BGS community members who achieved extraordinary things across a wide variety of fields; Australia’s oldest and longest-serving teacher, Don Barrett, who retired following a 67-year career in education; student stories on a trip to NASA headquarters in Houston, a world-class fencer, and up-and-coming racing drivers; ​​

  • The intent for Brisbane Grammar School’s 150-year anniversary was to Celebrate our Community and there is no doubt this was achieved throughout 2018. From the major BGS150 events including the Gala Dinner, a royal visit and Sports Lunch, to reunions around Australia and overseas, the theme of ‘community’ was front and centre.
