Boys' Senior School

Boys, parents and teachers are immensely proud of the Boys’ Senior School. Our positive and invigorating atmosphere allows every individual to thrive and develop his talents to the full.
The caring and happy environment within the Boys’ Senior School, combined with a positive approach to discipline, ensures high standards in the classroom and on the sports field and enjoyment of a wide variety of enrichment activities.

The school follows a broad and challenging curriculum, and great care is taken to ensure an appropriate balance between the arts, sciences, humanities, creative subjects, sport and enrichment activities.
Class sizes are small, with about 24 boys in each class in the Key Stage 3 years (7 - 9) and fewer at GCSE. At GCSE all boys study English, Mathematics, three separate Sciences and a Modern Foreign Language and additionally they opt from a wide range of other subjects with most boys studying nine GCSEs. Boys leave BGS as articulate, confident and well-rounded young men, ready to meet the opportunities and challenges of higher education and their future careers.


Mr Devin Cassidy – Headmaster
Our education is characterised by values of high expectations, rich opportunity and a commitment to expecting the best. Key to our success is the partnership between home and school and the warm and friendly school community in which our boys are raised. There is a collective pride in our boys’ achievements and in the talents of each individual.
While our top priority will always be to inspire boys in their learning and develop academic potential fully, we celebrate all our pupils’ strengths, wherever they may lie: the diversity of our community is something we cherish. Opportunities in Music, Drama, Sport and many other areas abound and are given prominence because we believe that, through involvement in a wide range of enrichment activities, the individual develops fully.
We want our pupils to be happy and confident in themselves; outstanding pastoral care supports our drive for academic success. This results in our boys leaving BGS as accomplished, articulate, generous and fulfilled individuals who will make a positive contribution to society.
