Transport

Redmaids' High is well placed for students and staff to reach thanks to excellent transport links across the city and beyond.

We run our own minibus services for students from Redland, Clifton and the Chew Valley, and are soon to add to this with a service for students in the South Bristol area.

There is a good network of public buses and a number of other private bus services from surrounding areas.  Eurotaxis, which runs an established service from South Gloucestershire to Bristol independent schools, is currently consulting parents over a new route serving districts in East Bristol, including Hanham, Kingswood, Warmley, Emerson’s Green, Downend and Stoke Gifford. To enquire further about this, contact WIlliam Sanzo at Eurotaxis directly.

Timetables and routes for our own private minibus services are here, plus a general travel information sheet:

Redmaids' High Travel Information

Safe travel

As a school, we ask everyone to play their part in reducing congestion in the local area at peak drop-off and pick-up times.

For students, this means walking, cycling or using public transport to get to school. Or, adopting a ‘park and stride’ approach, so parents drop-off and collect a short distance from the school gates and encourage girls to walk. This promotes exercise and significantly reduces disruption.

Our Junior School takes part in the ‘Living Streets’ programme, where pupils earn badges for travelling actively to school. They have already achieved their Bronze Modeshift Stars Award which reflects the positive steps being taken.

We ask all parents to be respectful to our neighbours and to refrain from parking across the driveways and garages of local residents.  Similarly, yellow zig-zag lines or double yellow lines should not be used as drop-off points. This is illegal and dangerous and the school passes all such car registrations to the police.

The school has discussed road safety at length with local Councillors and made several proposals to the council. These include requests to increase parking on site, and provide a safe ‘dropping off zone’. Unfortunately, to date, all our proposals and recommendations have been rejected.

We will continue to promote safer travel initiatives to our parents, students and staff and we hope the council will work with us to move forward.

If you have any concerns, please contact our local councillors or email us at seniors@redmaidshigh.co.uk so that together, we can ease the pressure on local roads.

Cycling to school

We have space for 50 bicycles in three shelters on the school site, and work closely with Bristol City Council to provide Bikeability training at Level 2 and 3, as well as 'Dr Bike' maintenance skills.
