School Tours

Come and see for yourself!

The best way to get a feel for the School is to visit us and meet some of the boys, the staff and the Headmaster.


Choose from three tour options

MCPL8292During 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.

However, 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 9am to 10.30am on the following dates. Tours start at the Junior School Reception.
