Outstanding characteristics: Redmaids’ High was the first International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Bristol, winning accreditation in 2008. Ten years on, it has guided its Sixth Form students to world-beating IB Diploma results, alongside its established and successful A Level programme. Its small, family friendly Junior School provides the perfect new start for girls rising up into Year 3. The spacious Sixth Form offers independent learning and relaxation space, and girls from many local schools join at this point to benefit from the excellent opportunities. Bursaries and scholarships are awarded to girls from all backgrounds joining at Year 7 and above. Redland Hall, opened in Sept 2017, is a busy and modern hub at the heart of the school, and is fast becoming a popular venue for concerts and other shows.
