Infant School

Young children love to learn. BGS Infant School is a happy and friendly place with a unique character and positive atmosphere.
Our pupils love Infant School! Purpose built classrooms and cheerful outdoor play areas are designed to help develop their understanding and sense of discovery. Our talented specialist staff ensure that the children’s innate curiosity is fully stimulated and learning is central to their day.

Our pupils make excellent progress. We recognise that the partnership that exists between School and parents is at the heart of every child’s successful progress and we seek to share with parents the pleasure of each child’s learning journey at every stage.
Physical challenge and creative development are vital for young children. Our specialist teachers including those for Sport, Music, IT and Modern Foreign Languages fully utilise our purpose built resources such as the Infant Sports Hall, Music Room and the central octagonal hall for our special concerts and assemblies. A wide variety of educational visits organised throughout the year inspire and excite the children’s natural spirit of enquiry and perfectly complement the School curriculum. By the end of Year 2 children are fully equipped to move on to the Boys’ and Girls’ Junior Schools, taking with them a secure academic foundation and enthusiasm for learning of all kinds.


Mrs Chrissy Howard - Head of Infant School 

School is about trying exciting new things, searching for answers, and learning both in and out of the classroom. Children are encouraged to explore the world around them and to make the most of the many opportunities available. We enjoy their different characters and personalities and firmly believe that every child has talents waiting to be unlocked.
BGS aims to give children the self-belief and confidence to take their place in the world with joy. We encourage a love of learning from the very earliest stage and aim to harness the potential of all our pupils.
My colleagues and I want our pupils to grow up, eager to learn about the world, to enjoy success, to strive for high standards and to be happy at school!
