Exciting times for BGS boarding

Brisbane Grammar School Boarding accommodation is currently undergoing a $5 million redevelopment.

In May this year, the School opened Griffith House – a dedicated house for 18 Middle School boarders in Years 5 to 8.

Griffith House is a significant development that represents Brisbane Grammar School’s commitment to providing a contemporary boarding program. Quality accommodation complements the School’s Academic, Wellbeing and Cocurriculum programs.

Boys have an individual room that exists within a dorm, giving them both privacy and connectedness. The house is equipped with brand new bathrooms and showers. The common room facilities, with lounge and kitchenette, let the boys share a sense of community.

Advanced plans are underway to renovate the senior boarding house to provide accommodation for 81 boys in Years 9 to 12. Harlin House will provide an individual room for each boy and new spaces for study and social activities.

Boys from Years 5 to 12 make up the BGS Boarding family, with a Director of Boarding, Head of Residence, Houseparent, nursing staff and House Tutors assisting the boys to adapt and feel at home.

Students have access to academic support during the week and engage in social, cultural and sporting activities after school and on weekends. A House Family system gives boarders the chance to make friends across year levels and develop a sense of belonging.

BGS Boarding aims to offer boys the best possible facilities in a supportive environment, where each boy is safe and happy, is valued as an individual, and is encouraged to achieve his best. Click to view our first Virtual Boarding Night.
