Bristol Grammar School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating


“Great school - amazing facilities”

"> BGS is a great school. Both my children are very happy and are thriving at the school. They have made great friends who support each other. There are lots of opportunities and the facilities are outstanding. Would highly recommend. there is so much choice
“Fabulous school”

"> BGS gave me an incredible 7 years - academically, socially and everything in-between! Staff and students are super friendly and as an OB, I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the BGS family. Lovely school.
“Flawed by bad leadership”

"> The school is good, teachers are a varied but ultimately a good bunch. Being forced to pay for school dinners (even if you don't want them), 4-5% fee increase every year, and a few other oddities remind you that this is a business. In my opinion, the headmaster is the weakest part of what is otherwise a good school.

Bristol Grammar School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
