At Brighton Grammar School the motto is “We Teach Boys”. The school is a learning community, passionate about developing, inspiring and guiding each boy on his journey to manhood. The goal is to develop good young men prepared to face the challenges of the future with confidence, compassion, flexibility and responsibility. Teaching boys is the school’s specialty. The school understands boys’ preferred learning styles and the curriculum, especially designed for boys, ensures they optimise the level of interest and engagement of each student. Brighton Grammar offers a diverse curriculum encompassing the academic, fine and performing arts, spiritual and physical learning needs of each boy. Programs are designed to give the boys the skills they need for the years ahead. Brighton Grammar School is a one-campus school of approximately 1200 that is separated into three clear sub-schools; Junior School (ELC to Year 6), Middle School (Year 7 and 8) and Senior School (Years 9 to 12). Brighton Grammar School has its own culture. Strongly community based, it has a proud Anglican history yet at the same time, welcomes boys and staff who follow other faiths.

Facilities: Brighton Grammar has a wide range of excellent facilities to support all aspects of learning and sport. A new purpose-built Early Learning Centre for 3-year-old and 4-year-old boys opened in 2011.

Curriculum: The school curriculum is like a progressive journey with various highlights and experiences at each year level. One highlight is the Year 9 program BGS Sea Change. There is a diverse range of core and elective subjects across the school.

Sport: As a member of the APS, boys are involved in a weekly Saturday morning competition. The sports in the competition include rugby, football, soccer, swimming, cricket, hockey, cross-country, rowing, tennis, water polo, snow-sports, basketball, bowls and athletics.

Extra-curricular activities: The school’s music program includes choirs, orchestras, wind and string ensembles, concert and big bands. Other activities on offer include chess, public speaking, debating, drama, community service, St John Ambulance, cadets, Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards Scheme and more. There is a challenging Outdoor Education program involving boys from Prep to Year 10. Various teams and groups are involved in interstate and overseas sports and cultural excursions.

Student welfare programs: Boys are allocated to forms and houses. The needs of all individuals are recognised and catered for, so they can participate fully in every aspect of school life.
