Our site is unique. Our eclectic architectural styles promotes an engaging and relaxed atmosphere which we all feel proud to belong to. We blend traditional with modern; creativity with innovation.
Within our buildings we create spaces for forward-thinking learning which take teaching out of traditional classroom settings and replicate the modern working place; so that our students learn to respond to different environments and understand how this impacts collaboration and working styles.
From light filled glass libraries, state-of-the-art science labs to our dedicated drama and dance wing learning is always exciting at BGS. Our younger students are nurtured in our dedicated Junior School building before moving into our main school buildings at Year 7. Our Sixth Form House offers a large common room, private study spaces, seminar style teaching rooms and its own café, offering the independence needed as students look towards university and the working world.
Our outstanding sports facilities include a 20 meet indoor pool, flood lit astro-pitches, a dedicated modern lacrosse facility, sports halls and a fitness centre. Our location on the banks of the River Ouse provides the perfect location for rowing and our wonderful boathouse is always hub of activity.
