Welcome to Redmaids’ High

We were formed from the merger of two of the South West’s finest girls’ schools - The Red Maids’ School and Redland High School for Girls. This has given us a unique viewpoint.

Red Maids' having been founded in 1634 and Redland High in 1882, gives us a combined history of over 500 years, retaining our position as the oldest surviving girls' school in the country, and providing proven experience and expertise in educating girls.

At the same time, the formation of our  ‘new’ school has enabled us to start a new chapter with fresh, revitalised and dynamic purpose.

Altogether a better education for girls

Of course, 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 girls 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 alumni network are an integral part of the school and a hugely valuable asset for all our students.

A stepping-stone for a satisfying life

All this adds up to Redmaids’ High School being one of the finest girls’ schools 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.
