As well as this page of our website, remember to take a look at our BGJS News Gallery and Sports Gallery to find out more about what has been happening at our school!

Following on from our exciting outdoor events such as the Outdoor Nativity before Christmas,  we can now confirm that the BG Community Festival 2019 will take place on Friday 19th July 2019! Get ready for another night of entertainment on our outdoor theatre. Groups of our children will be performing of course (as they are the real stars) alongside a range of varied special guests.

Watch this space!

(If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering to perform at our festival, please email the school office. Thanks!)

 

What a great night this was for our community back in 2017...

 

 

Thanks to Mr. Wingfield for this fantastic video!

It really does captures how much fun we had celebrating our 50th Anniversary here at BGJS!

Thanks as always to our fantastic PA and to all other volunteers for their time and support. We couldn't have done it without you!
