Senior Speech Night was unable to take place on Wednesday 15th December due to the new variant.  Please find below a 'virtual celebration' including speeches from the Headteacher, guest speaker Lucy Noone Blake, and Heads of School, celebrating your achievements.
In terms of collecting certificates and awards, these can be collected on any Wednesday in the new year (depending on evolving restrictions, except for the week beginning the 10th January). You will need proof of identification to collect e.g. passport or provisional driving licence.  If you would like someone to collect your certificates on your behalf, please email Mrs Swift at to confirm who will be collecting your certificates. They will need a form of identification too. 
We hope that you are finding your courses/next steps post-BRGS to be rewarding and fulfilling and we are really disappointed not to see you in person to hear about how you are getting on and to congratulate you in person for your achievements.  We also apologise to your parents/carers that they are unable to watch you formally receive your certificates. 
Do feel free to send through to the school’s Twitter account (BRGS_1701) any photos of you with your certificates and we would be happy to publish these (in doing so you are consenting for the photo to be used on social media and for your name to be used).

  • Are you looking for a sixth form college with a proven record of delivering excellent results at A level?
  • Do you want to be part of a welcoming, friendly and supportive community where you can thrive academically and socially?

  • Do you enjoy a balance between independent study with structured support provided by experienced teachers?
  • Would you like the opportunity to develop your wider employability and leadership skills through enrichment opportunities and working with younger pupils?

Our A level results in 2020 continued our record of high achievement with 66.2% A*-B grades and 40.7% at A*/A (centre assessed grades).

We are in the top 25% of sixth form providers for value added - this means that students make really good progress, whatever their starting points.  We have a strong focus on growth mindset and provide both the challenge and support necessary for you to achieve your ambitions.

We offer a broad range of two year academic A level courses  - students choose four subjects to study from the start of Year 12, but most reduce this to three at the end of the first term.

We also offer a huge range of enrichment options which will allow you to develop your wider skills.  Being part of an 11-18 school also provides lots of opportunities to work with lower school pupils in a variety of leadership roles.

Our students go on to a wide range of destinations: from degrees in a wide range of subjects at universities across the country, to higher level apprenticeships and a range of employment options.

We were rated outstanding by OFSTED in 2016 - click here to see what they had to say.
