The Boston Grammar 418360 Letter to parents
Young Enterprise win for BGS
Boston Grammar School’s three Young Enterprise companies: Infinity, Velocity and Vertigo took part in the Boston & Spalding Area Final held at Spalding High School on Tuesday 19th March, competing with companies from Boston and Spalding schools. They had to demonstrate their products by constructing a trade stand, present a 4 minute summary of their findings to an audience and were quizzed by three judges about how they had run their companies since September. Velocity, led by Adam Bevan, won the competition as best company, beating strong competition from across the area, along with trophies for best presentation and financial management. Vertigo won a trophy for best teamwork and Infinity won a trophy for the best marketing. The Velocity company now goes on to represent Boston and Spalding at the County final at RAF Cranwell in May. Congratulations to all participants and to Mr Woodcock, their co-ordinator.
Things are looking up!
We’d like to thank those of you who took the time and trouble to complete our parent survey this year. The 27.9% return was significantly higher than the return of 2010 (17.7%) and gave us a good insight into the things that you like about the school and the things you want for your children.
Particularly pleasing were the responses to the headline questions, as shown in percentage form here:

Welcome to Boston Grammar School
It can be difficult, in a few short lines, to encapsulate the distinctive ethos and aims of a school, and we would encourage all parents considering this school for their child's education to visit us and see the school in action for themselves.
What we believe you will see is a selective school dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence, within the context of a small, friendly and caring community. With able and motivated pupils, and a dedicated team of staff, this school encourages all talents, creates a purposeful environment in which to learn, and provides opportunities for the spiritual,
moral, cultural and social development of all of its young people.
In the setting of our fine historical buildings, we prepare our pupils to take their place in the wider community, equipping them to compete in the future job market and take their place at the forefront of society.
We are proud of our traditions, and we have a clear vision of the future. We hope that you share in our aspirations for your children.
