All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
What The Good Schools Guide says
During 2016/17, Perdita Davidson, pastoral head at the school for 16 years, will oversee the merger with Redmaids' High School and the transfer to its site, where the combined Redmaids' High will be headed by Isobel Tobias.

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
