Redland High School has been providing an exceptional education for girls since 1882 and is based around a large Georgian mansion in the Redland region of Bristol.
The school has been providing a wide educational experience for girls for over 130 years within a caring community which encourages high levels of success and where intellectual development is complemented by high quality performance in the arts, sport and extra-curricular activities.
The pupils achieve particularly well and make excellent progress through a wide-ranging, flexible and balanced curriculum to develop each individual’s potential. Girls progress on to higher education, with many gaining their first choice of university or other institution in highly competitive entry.
The Red Maids’ School is the oldest surviving girls’ school in the country and was founded in 1634 by John Whitson, Lord Mayor and MP for Bristol. His importance to The Red Maids’ School is celebrated on Founder’s Day each year when the students and staff process through the city to a service at the Cathedral.
The school has grown from the original 40 girls, and today provides an outstanding academic education for over 600 students from 7 to 18 years. The Red Maids’ School is set in 12 acres of landscaped grounds and is based around an impressive 18th Century mansion with outstanding additional facilities and a stunning new Sixth Form Centre.
The popular and successful Junior School, for girls from 7 – 11 years, is adjacent to the Senior School and linked by a footpath. The Red Maids’ School is unique in the region by offering in the Sixth Form a full A Level programme or the option of the widely acclaimed International Baccalaureate Diploma.
