Come and see for yourself!
The best way to get a ‘feel’ for the School is to make a visit and meet some boys, staff and the Headmaster.
There are two main options for tours
During the Headmaster’s Tour you will take a 90-minute walk around the whole campus, which will give you an overall and ‘authentic’ feel for the School. Every tour is different. Nothing is pre-planned. What you see depends on what is happening at the time.
But what you will always get is an understanding of our approach to teaching boys, the strategic priorities of the School and why we do what we do. Along the way, our Headmaster Ross Featherston will introduce you to boys who happen to cross your path, and ask them to share a little of their BGS story.
Numbers are limited and bookings are essential.
The Headmaster walks quickly so wear comfortable shoes!
Children and prams are welcome. The Headmaster’s Tour will run from 9 to 10.30am on the following dates. Tours start at the Junior School Reception.
