BGS House System
'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.'

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.
