Welcome to Ross Girls

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

The Ross Girls are all day girls from Form II through Form VII, however being a day student does not stop these girls from being some of the most active participants in all aspects of our BCS community.  They are many school hosted events that the girls enjoy such as the dances, weekend activity trips & the inter-house carnival and track and field. Ross House (both girls & boys) often get together to host back to school BBQs, carnival suppers and holidays pizza parties.
     The culture in Ross House is one of respect, community and union where the girls can always count on each other for support and encouragement.  While one of the smaller houses on campus the girls are known for their involvement and determined spirit in any extracurricular activity. Since Ross House includes girls from Form II-VII it allows the younger girls to have support and guidance from their peers and it encourages leadership in the older forms.

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.

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).

Bishop's College School is an independent English-language boarding and day school for grades 7 to 12 in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.
