    Hi,

    the school is practically 98% asian filled and it is very likely that majority of them are boarders. Don't get fooled by it's advertising covers.
    In some years, the social groups are quite segregated. You have the
    1) ASIANS
    2) blondes 3) russians 4) nigerians 5) day girls

    It is quite a 'relaxed' environment but people know how to work hard and play hard.

    Are you going to be a boarder/day/weekly ?

    I've heard something broadly similar (a couple of years ago) about it being a third Chinese, a third British and a third Russian.

    Personally I've always got the distinct impression that you could do better with that much money - either as a day pupil in Bristol (BGS is quite good) or a boarder elsewhere, but I know it does suit a lot of people who go there.

    Is it really segregated? And is there really that many Chinese girls? Do the races usually just hang out with each other? I'll be a boarder and I don't really know how I feel about going to a school in another country where it's really segregated. :/
