​​​​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.

  • Earlier this month, the BGS Gender Respect Committee attended the International Women’s Day Breakfast. This year’s theme was generational equality, encouraging equal opportunity for women and girls at home, school and in the workplace. The event spurred the committee to develop the ‘The Collaborate for Change’ initiative. Read Year 11 students Aly Sultan and Tom Stunden's reflection.

  • ​Each Foundation Day, we commemorate and celebrate our School’s achievements, past and present. It is our opportunity to consider the students, staff and parents who contributed to 152 years of Brisbane Grammar School history. Some of the School’s most influential past teachers and leaders are remembered with the presentation of Old Boy scholarships.​

  • ​​​​The academic results of Brisbane Grammar School's Class of 2019 are representative of the excellent outcomes achieved by BGS students over the 28 years the OP system has operated in Queensland. A median of OP5 showcases the consistency and depth of the cohort. This broadly equates to an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) median of 93, placing BGS among the best-performing schools in Australia.​

  • Brisbane Grammar School welcomed over 260 excited new students today, including 12 new boarders.​ Parents heard from the Headmaster, Head of Middle School and School Captain in The Lilley Centre Forum​ as part of the Orientation Day program.
