An opportunity for everyone
At Redmaids’ High, we have an extensive range of extra-curricular activities for your daughter to take part in. There are plays, choirs and concerts to perform in, 10-kilometre races to be run, short films to be shot, and radio programmes to be produced. Students might want to edit a magazine, enter public speaking competitions or start a charity.
Whether she wants to pursue an existing passion or discover a new one, your daughter will find something to get involved with that will be invaluable in years to come.
With first-class sports facilities on their doorstep our students enjoy a wide range of sporting activities at lunchtime, after school and at weekends. These are open to everyone and include Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Canoeing, Caving, Climbing, Cricket, Cross-country running, Dance, Fencing, Football, Gymnastics, Hockey, Netball, Swimming, Tennis and Orienteering. We are also registered with the National Schools Equine Association.
There is no shortage of competitive sport either, with an extensive fixture list against a wide range of schools across the region and in many county, regional and national tournaments.

Music is a big part of school life at Redmaids’ High. Nearly 20 ensembles rehearse weekly, from Chamber Choir and Musical Theatre Group to an A Cappella group, Symphony Orchestra, and Swing Band. We also run specialist instrumental ensembles, one-on-one music lessons and a community choir, which includes parents, staff, and alumnae.
The talented musicians at Redmaids’ High School give countless concerts every year at prestigious venues in the UK and further afield. These include performances at St. George’s Bristol, Bristol Cathedral and the O2 Arena, whilst our biennial music tours have given students the opportunity to perform in Spain, Italy, China and Austria.
Redland Hall, our outstanding state-of-the-art auditorium and performance space, is perfect for the wealth of drama opportunities available at Redmaids’ High School. From drama clubs and stage school productions, to taking part in the annual Bristol Speech and Drama Festival, our drama students have shone in many regional and national competitions. Our students have also performed at other prestigious locations including Bristol’s Tobacco Factory theatres and the world-renowed Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
