​​​​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.

  • ​​​High achieving academic and extracurricular students were recognised and the graduating Class of 2017 were farewelled at Speech Day on Wednesday 15 November. The occasion also provided an opportunity to hear from the School’s leaders and guest speaker BGS Old Boy Major General John Pearn ’57.

  • ​​Congratulations to BGS community member Karen Campbell, who is the new owner of an Audi A1 Sportsback from Audi Centre Brisbane​ after her ticket was drawn from the raffle. Mrs Campbell has a son currently in Year 11 at BGS.​ Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets in the raffle and the BGS support groups who helped sell tickets.

  • Growing up on a mango farm in rural Northern Territory, the remote location meant Joel Bock couldn’t attend day school. Instead he was schooled via distance education, until his life changed in 2008. Gaining a bursary to attend Brisbane Grammar School opened the doors of opportunity for Joel.

  • ​​The BGS Closing the Gap committee, led by Year 12 student Ashmit Vyas, hosted Kick for a Cause on Saturday 10 June, with the school community joined by two famous sports star graduates in raising funds for Lady Cilento Children's ​Hospital to support patients from remote Indigenous communities.​
