A message from Rosie Croom OB
Results Day 2018
We are very excited to have started a project to ensure the history of BGS is preserved and available in a format that we can share with our community.
Following on from our successful events in January and May where we hosted 50 guests the next of these informal breakfasts is to be held in the Foyer of the 1532 Performing Arts Centre on Thursday 18 October 2018. Parents from across the School, together with past parents and Old Bristolians are invited to come along and meet each other in an informal setting. This is a regular event for our School community, where a group of business professionals with the shared common interest of Bristol Grammar School can meet up and share their ideas. We will be asking some Sixth Form pupils to join us together with staff and former staff which will also give attendees the opportunity to find out about what is happening at the School. We are delighted that we will be joined by former parent Kate Percy, founder of Go Faster Food, who will give a short presentation. She has recently been recognised as one of the 100 game-changing entrepreneurs in the UK by Maserati in conjunction with The Sunday Times. The event will be free – but will have limited spaces which will be allocated on a "first come first served basis". We ask that you let us know if you can’t make it so that others can have the opportunity to come along. Look forward to seeing you on 18 October.
Please join us for this years' Remembrance Service in the Great Hall.
This evening we welcome back the ‘Class of 2018’ to celebrate their achievements in the academic year 2017–2018. On behalf of the School we wish them every success. Old Bristolians and their parents are always welcome back at School and we do hope they will continue to return and stay in touch with our ‘BGS family’.
Charter Day, held at Bristol Cathedral, is one of the key events in the BGS calendar. It is the occasion when we celebrate King Henry VIII’s granting of the School Charter in 1532, and when the School is on show to the people of Bristol. The tradition of wearing a daffodil was established by the wife of Cyril Norwood, and the service was moved to the Cathedral in John Garrett’s time. The date of the charter granted to Bristol Grammar School was 17 March 1532.
