BGS alumni

At Belmont Grosvenor School, we love to keep in touch with our old boys and girls and hear their news and achievements as they progress through life.

We welcome past pupils into school to talk to our children and inspire them through assemblies, speech days, and official openings of new facilities. This gives our children a true sense of their heritage and enables them to pursue their goals in life and encourages their motivation and ambition.

We are hoping that, with the growth in technology and social media, we can create a truly global network for our alumni community. Whether you live in America or Birstwith, or left five or fifty years ago, we share a bond that transcends distance, age, occupation, and cultural background.

We hope that all Year 6 leavers will take full advantage of their membership of the BGS Alumni. We also hope that they will be active alumni members and stay in touch with the school and each other; the rewards are truly life-long and worldwide.
