Welcome to Ross Girls

We rise to every occasion and enjoy the best of both worlds.

"Having a senior and junior house together presents unique opportunities to forge unlikely friendships, create bonds that will last forever and help instill a sense of responsibility, compassion and genuine concern for others. Ross Girls are remarkably involved in the fabric of the school and lose nothing by not being boarders; in fact, our school spirit is unsurpassed for such a small house! It is a privilege and a pleasure to watch these extraordinary young women grow, mature and gain the confidence and skills they will need to face the journey ahead." 

What we like to do

We participate in a myriad of school activities: inter-house track and field, carnival and cross-country races. We hold house dinners twice a year and have a pizza party during Carnival. There really is not much of a difference between us and a boarding house because we come together and live many of the same experiences as a boarding residence (minus the sleepovers).

Honouring J.K.L Ross

Commander John Kenneth Leveson Ross was a BCS student from 1886-91. He became the Chairman of the Board in 1914, at a time when the school was in a deficit. Ross wrote a cheque for the full amount. He was Chairman for eight years and was determined to separate BCS from Bishop’s University. He even offered to purchase the university campus but was refused. This led him to the land across the river, where BCS is situated today. He began building the School House, dining hall and Prep House. The new buildings were officially opened on June 27, 1918 by the Governor General of Canada and the Duke of Devonshire. Our dining hall is also named in honour of Ross' contributions to BCS.
