About Redmaids’ High School

We were formed from the merger of two of Bristol’s finest girls’ schools – The Red Maids’ School and Redland High School for Girls.

As the oldest surviving girls’ school in the country, we have a distinguished history and longstanding expertise in educating girls. At the same time, the formation of our ‘new’ school has enabled us to start a new chapter with a fresh, revitalised and dynamic purpose.

Altogether a better education for girls

Our school has developed well beyond the imagination of the original founders. The world-class opportunities in science and technology we now provide could never have been dreamed of all those years ago. Our facilities have blossomed into the very best learning environments, allowing our students to excel not only academically but also in sport, drama, art and music. The international links we have developed over the years and our thriving alumnae network are an integral part of the school and a hugely valuable asset for all our students.

All this adds up to Redmaids’ High School being one of the finest girls’ schools in Bristol and in the UK. The opportunities and facilities we provide equip our young women with the skills and confidence to truly make their mark in today’s world.

Our Mission and Values

Our Mission Statement is a simple one:

Redmaids’ High is an inclusive community, based on happiness, aspiration, and support for others.

Our statement is supported by our Values, which outline the core aspects that will help us fulfill our mission. These are:

  • To know and understand each individual student
  • To help students to understand themselves and their strengths
  • To inspire students to forge a future of lifelong learning, in all its guises

Our mission and values are simple, and deliberately so. We are proud of the achievements and destinations for all our students, and this is the result of the hard work by all members of the Redmaids’ High community to ensure that students feel known and valued for who they are, as well as inspired about what they can be. We want all students to leave with the strong sense that they can go on and make a difference in the world, whatever they go on to do. A students definition of success is their own, but what we instill in them is a feeling that their sights should never be lowered by external forces.
