About Bristol Grammar School

Mission of the School

Life-changing learning, friendships, and adventure. 

Bristol Grammar School was founded in 1532 as a school for boys; today, it is a thriving co-educational day school where girls and boys aged 4–18 find a world of opportunity, the chance to discover their potential and the encouragement and confidence they need to succeed.

We aim high at Bristol Grammar School and are proud to do so; inspiring a love of learning, fostering intellectual independence and promoting self-confidence and a sense of adventure amongst our young. We set our sights on academic excellence and involve our students in progressive, responsible and engaging debate in everything we do.

Our purpose is to provide an exceptional education for all our students, developing in them a spirit of enquiry and independence of thought through high-quality teaching, warm pastoral care and broad-ranging intellectual, physical and cultural opportunities. We wish to encourage a mature sense of responsibility from an early age, forming well-rounded young people who are able to use their talents and leadership potential in the service of others, here and in their future lives.

Above all, we are committed to supporting our students so that every one of them may achieve their goals and leave BGS as confident, compassionate and ambitious young adults.


Aims of the School

For every student to:

  • achieve their full academic potential through a rich, stimulating and progressive learning experience
  • be prepared and motivated to contribute positively and compassionately to the world through the cultivation of our School spirit
  • flourish culturally, intellectually, morally, physically and spiritually in a happy and nurturing environment through a wide range of far-reaching opportunities.
