What says..

Classrooms are big and vibrant with displayed work, though definitely not purpose built. Two delightfully articulate and friendly 10-year-olds took charge of the Good Schools Guide’s visitor, explaining they had finished their art task first so were free to do a tour. Synthetic phonics and jolly phonics. We saw girls having a violin taster lesson – they do the same things with cello, woodwind and brass, so no wonder the orchestras are flourishing. In another music lesson there was thoughtful discussion of different nationalities’ dancing...

What the school says...

Redland High Junior School is housed in Victorian buildings close to the Senior School, we place due emphasis on ensuring that the girls acquire excellent core skills but also devote time to many extras that are not part of the national curriculum. Standards of music, art and drama are very high indeed. Class sizes are small to ensure each girl gets optimum attention and to enable the girls to express their individuality and know that they are special members of the close-knit community. We also offer after school care and our Redland Rascals Holiday club. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says

Acting headteacher

During 2016/17, Rachel Hayward, who has been at the school for over 30 years, is overseeing the merger with Red Maids' School and the move to its Westbury site.

Entrance

Non-selective into pre-prep, then NFER tests which are also used to monitor progress. Tests and assessment are done on taster days and parents say once within the doors most want to stay. Numbers practically double from year 4 as state school parents wake up to advantages of getting daughters into senior school via this route and also being in with a chance of a scholarship. Early warning given if any girls unlikely to make grade.

Special Education Needs

Redland High School has a Special Educational Needs Coordinator who works in both the junior and senior schools so that continuity is provided as girls progress. From Year 1 upwards, each girl is assessed on entry to Redland and problems, such as dyslexia, addressed with an individual plan to help her overcome difficulties and achieve her potential. Gifted children are stretched by being set work ahead of their year group and early entrance to public examinations for the most able is common. Further stimulus is provided through the school’s varied programme of extra-curricular activities which includes academic options such as Mandarin. 09-09
