An independent, non-denominational school for boys, Brisbane Grammar School has been an educational leader in Queensland since 1868.
In Spring Hill, across from Roma Street parklands, the campus has two precincts: a Middle School for Years 5 to 8 and a Senior School from Years 9 to 12.
The School’s broad liberal education develops multi-literate students who are critical, reflective and creative thinkers. A special teaching framework provides skills to tackle the demands of Queensland’s new ATAR assessment system.
Harlin House is home for up to 120 boarders, with 60 rooms for senior boarders, each with an individual private area. Three dormitories provide 60 beds for boarders from Years 5 to 10.
The boarding experience reflects the School’s values. Harlin House is a respectful community with a high regard for learning, leadership and endeavour. Staff focus on the holistic wellbeing of boys to help them fulfil their individual potential.
Co-curricular sports, art, drama, music, and clubs and activities cater for boys wanting to learn new skills and make new friends through to elite performers with the highest aspirations.
Student wellbeing is central to the School’s mission. BGS supports boys to be happy, confident and resilient, both at school and as lifelong learners. Students are encouraged to take part in public purpose programs specific to each year level, to foster a sense of service and connection to the wider community.
As part of its unique educational experience for boys, BGS also provides students with adventure-based programs at the School’s Outdoor Education Centre at Moogerah, west of Brisbane.
