What says..

As a small school in a volatile market, Redland necessarily takes quite a wide range of abilities and does extremely well for them. Staff are hot at spotting a high flier resting on laurels and issuing a challenge. The art department, now under new leadership, is exceptional. In three floors of its own imaginatively converted house, every scrap of space is crammed with activity, pictures and installations. Girls gain proper drawing and painting skills with life classes etc but also branch into sculpture, printing and some remarkable portraiture....

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Academic matters

For a small school there’s pretty impressive choice, with 27 subjects at A level and 25 at GCSE. Parents see the school as definitely having an academic bias but insist it’s not a hothouse. As a small school in a volatile market, Redland necessarily takes quite a wide range of abilities and does extremely well for them. Staff are hot at spotting a high flier resting on laurels and issuing a challenge.

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. We have direct experience of helping a pupil with aplastic anaemia to cope with school life. 10-09
