My cohort was very friendly and welcoming. There were approximately 220 students in our graduating class, I believe, and everyone knew each other by name. This is thanks to the school holding different class events that mixed the grade beyond the classroom. There is a great deal of diversity amongst the students. Including international diversity thanks to the boarding program. It is inevitable for a student to be exposed to backgrounds unique from their own which is very different from schools that base acceptance on geographic catchment in the city or religion. There is no one type of person that embodies the BSS girl in my opinion but if I had to name some qualities of a BSS student they would be friendly, outgoing and achievement oriented.
