​​​​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.

  • ​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.

  • ​The GPS Association Working Party, established to review the Rugby Review Report into the serious spinal injuries experienced by four boys during 2018, has released its response to the report’s recommendations. The Working Party’s highest priority is to ensure changes are made that improve player care and safety.​
  • To coincide with the publication of Light Dark Blue, celebrating Brisbane Grammar School's sesquicentenary, new lists containing academic prizes, scholarships, captains and champions of sport were created. This Awards Chronicle contains 114 prize lists, with over 6000 entries in a searchable database.
