Why choose BSG? We are passionate about, and experts in, girls’ education. We believe in offering every girl a well-rounded education in an environment with the space to inspire, challenge, encourage and support her to develop her full potential to become the amazing person she can be in this fast changing world.
We want your child to grow with us, learn with us, make friends for life and enjoy her time with us. We encourage her to develop intellectual curiosity, self-esteem, respect and care for others, independence and excellence in all she does, with a real love for life. The Senior School is a thriving community of girls age 11 – 16 years who are taught in separate year groups 1- 5. The Sixth Form consists of Lower Sixth age 16 years and Upper Sixth age 17 years, when most will go on to the University of their choice.
The school is one of only 27 schools in the country, and the only one in the South West to hold the Eco Schools Ambassador Award, demonstrating green issues and sustainability embedded into the ethos of the school. We offer excellence in education and superb pastoral care with core values.
We are in the top 12% of schools for added value at GCSE Level. Not only do we add value in terms of a wide variety of extra-curricular activities with excellent facilities within the school, enhancing creativity through community art and eco links, we also add value in terms of excellence in academic results, adding on average, across every subject, approximately one grade to each girl’s predicted performance and the vast majority go on to their first choice university.
Our lively boarding community enjoys excellent facilities and encourages girls to share in a wide range of extra-curricular activities and to make new, often life-long, friendships. The strong pastoral support and guidance recognises each girl’s needs and provides a framework for her to achieve. Situated in the south-west, within two hours of Heathrow Airport and with good links to London by road and rail, our beautiful countryside location offers a rich variety of opportunities in a safe, secure yet stimulating environment.
