Expansion of Redmaids' High facilities






Redmaids’ High School is pleased to confirm that it has acquired from Aviva Investors the
sports ground near Cribbs Causeway, currently operating under the name Cribbs Sports &
Social Club.

The site is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the School. The 16.7 acre plot includes four full
size grass football pitches, four tennis courts, a 3G all-weather Astroturf pitch, a large car
park, together with extensive changing and social facilities.

Redmaids’ High School intends in due course to invest in a new hockey pitch and upgrade
the pavilion at the site in Henbury to ensure the highest quality amenities are available. In
the meantime, the School will continue to use the excellent grounds which it leases at
Golden Hill.

Chair of Governors for Redmaids’ High School, Mrs Jane MacFarlane, said “We are delighted
to have acquired this sports ground from Aviva Investors. It is already an impressive site
and with our further investment this will be an invaluable asset for the School and the wider

“Sport at the School is of a very high calibre. We see our girls frequently competing at both
regional and national level. With these new and improved facilities we anticipate seeing
even more participation in sport across the student body.”

Redmaids’ High School is very conscious of the current wide public use of Cribbs Sports &
Social Club and has no immediate plans to change these arrangements. The School will
work with the Club to create a plan to improve the facilities further, ensuring wherever
possible continued public access, consistent with the needs of the School.

Redmaids’ High School was advised by JLL and Clarke Willmott. Aviva Investors was advised
by Savills and DLA.
