Girls' Senior School

Outstanding academic achievements, high aspirations, exceptional dramatic and musical performances, magnificent sporting successes, team work and a ‘can do’ approach are the hallmarks of the Girls’ Senior School.
The Girls’ Senior School is committed to providing a positive and inspiring learning environment where each pupil is supported in all aspects of school life. Our aim is to nurture our pupils with a skill set and a desire to learn that will help them exceed their potential as they embark on their further education and careers.
Our girls excel in all areas and our phenomenal examination results are the outcome of passionate teaching in a stimulating environment, coupled with an unwavering work ethic from the pupils. Outstanding achievements do not just take place in the classroom; we aim to develop the girls as individuals through our exciting and varied breadth of enrichment activities.
The sense of community at BGSG is undeniable. The pupils are on an educational journey, but are also building important relationships that form the foundations of our successful, warm community. Our girls understand that they are known as individuals and that they truly belong in BGSG.



Mrs Jo Anderson – Headmistress
BGS Girls’ Senior School is a happy, successful environment where we seek to inspire pupils to work hard, aim high and achieve. Our pupils are supported in a family atmosphere with strong personalised pastoral care. Excellent pupil-teacher relationships, positions of responsibility and leadership opportunities and a focus on emotional intelligence and resilience, provide a balanced approach to pastoral care which gives our pupils the confidence to be themselves.
Pupils are challenged by their teachers to reach the highest standards possible; they also, most importantly, are keen to challenge themselves. The ability to think critically, interest themselves in the world around them and show a determined effort to be positive in the face of challenges – while of course gaining much enjoyment from their education – are qualities which will stand BGS girls in good stead in the future. Above all, my colleagues and I know our pupils well. We are very experienced in supporting girls through the teenage years and in encouraging them to be the very best versions of themselves possible.
We are focused on nurturing the individual and on aiming for excellence. There is no reason at all why the teenage years cannot be fulfilling, enjoyable and full of good learning!
