Brisbane Grammar School is an independent, non-denominational, day and boarding school for boys, located in Spring Hill, Brisbane. Set on a heritage listed site, BGS opened in 1868 on its Roma Street site, making it one of the oldest school in Australia. It relocated soon after to its current Spring Hill location, overlooking the Brisbane CBD.
Grammar has an outstanding 147-year historical commitment to educating boys, which is expressed both in terms of academic outcomes and the development of lifelong learners. The school’s longstanding commitment to a broad liberal education continues to best prepare its students for an exciting but complex world of change and diversity. As the world changes, so too does Grammar adapt, with its educators continuing to innovate to remain at the forefront of advancing teaching and learning practices.
Today BGS caters for about 1700 boys, from year 5-12, with 102 boarders calling the school home. The school is split into a Middle School and Senior School, designed to operate in an integrated manner and provide a seamless transition from boys’ middle to senior years.
An important part of learning at Grammar happens beyond the classroom. The school’s extensive and balanced extracurricular program across sports, art, drama, music, and a vast array of clubs and activities caters for boys wanting to learn new skills and make new friends, through to elite performers with the highest aspirations.
To add to that student wellbeing program represents an integral element of the school’s mission. BGS is committed to a culture that fosters and inspires the ongoing development of resilient, responsible and happy individuals.
