school house system at bgs
'Two house events are definitely among my highlights of the BGS year. There is sports day, where everyone takes part, regardless of how sporty they are - and all the pupils genuinely cheer each other on. And the House Music Contest at Christmas, which really has to be experienced to be believed and is the greatest fun! I love these events because you really see and feel how warm, supportive, friendly and fun our school is.'
Mrs J Anderson, Principal

NEILD is named after Miss Nellie Neild, Oxford MA (1919 - 1940). Miss Neild was keen to promote that girls should get the same opportunities as boys, that even if it was not necessary for them to earn a living the value of being independent was immeasurable. If they wanted to be really happy they should serve others. Work was essential to a happy life.
