The focus of Brighton Grammar School is to ensure each boy is nurtured and stretched to ensure he reaches his personal best in every endeavour. While academic success is our number one priority, we also have a diverse range of other activities on offer including sports, music, performing arts and cultural programs.

Living and studying in Australia
While Brighton Grammar encourages parents to live in Australia while their child is studying at the school, we also welcome boys who wish to reside in homestay arrangements (provided they are over the age of 13).
All students, whether they are living with family or in homestay will be introduced to our International Liaison officer and provided with a support person prior to commencement at BGS.
BGS also has a large parent support network that meets regularly in order support the parents of international students while their son studies in Australia. The parent support group is managed by our International Liaison officer.
