​​​​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.
