The deputy headmaster, Dr Andrew Edwards, said “I should like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students and staff of BRGS who work in a very busy school. Over the last two years we have developed a partnership between students and teachers both in the teaching classroom and in our wide range of extra-curricular activities. It is very satisfying to see how both our own and students who join our sixth form from elsewhere have flourished in the school and progressed from the excellent teaching that they have received at GCSE level both in our own school and the other secondary schools that feed students into our sixth form”.
