Lawns proposed plans unveiled

Proposed plans for The Lawns, Station Road, Henbury

The 16.7 acre site at The Lawns, Station Road, Henbury will provide additional sports facilities to those we already have at our main campus in Westbury-on-Trym.

At present we lease additional grounds at nearby Golden Hill but this arrangement expires in 2021.

The Lawns is currently known as Cribbs Sports and Social Club, offering space for football and tennis, and a large pavilion with social facilities.

The school’s ambitions for the site include the installation of two new artificial hockey pitches, six new outdoor netball and tennis courts, and a single-storey pavilion.

Two existing natural turf football pitches will be retained with flexibility for part of this area to be used for school athletics, cricket and rounders in the summer.

The school recognises the present use of the grounds by Cribbs Football Club and other clubs, and is eager to ensure continued usage of the facility by the community as a whole.

Mrs Tobias, Headmistress, said: ”It is vital to encourage young people to take part in sport, both competitively and for fun.

“Developing positive attitudes at a young age towards keeping active is an important goal for us as a school and our vision for the Lawns will help to reinforce this outlook.”

Redmaids’ High Chairman of Governors, Andrew Hillman, said: “This is a really important step in the future of the school, helping to cement our vision for sporting excellence which has already led our school teams to regional and national success in hockey and netball.

“While providing a first class site for school sport and recreation, we also want to continue our association with Cribbs Sports and Social Club and hope our investment in high quality facilities will attract other clubs and maximise the use of the grounds for both the school and wider community.”
