Redland High School for Girls
Every girl who comes to Redland High is respected as an individual and is encouraged to develop to her full potential.
The opportunities she will have here are many and varied, so that she can discover her talents and her strengths, and develop good relationships with others, all within a secure environment with excellent pastoral care.
Redland High is an optimum size: small enough for each girl to be known well but large enough to offer a very wide range of subjects and experience, whether academic, sporting, artistic or musical. Our curriculum is well balanced and we aim to create a thirst for learning through specialist teaching by highly qualified staff. Each girl is guided to strive for excellence in all aspects of her life and to achieve the highest public examination results of which she is capable.
We produce articulate and confident girls who are proud of their school and are well equipped for the challenges that life holds. Please visit, meet the girls, the staff and see for yourself what Redland High could offer your daughter.
I look forward to meeting you.

Congratulations to all girls on their excellent performances at the Redland High Autumn Concert. A very varied range of music was played and sung, much appreciated by a very large audience.

Whilst the press reports a drop in language specialists, five teams of Redland High linguists debated against other schools from Bristol. This was an excellent opportunity for pupils to show not only their language skills but also their passion, defending their ideas in a wide range of topics such as immigration and addiction to the screens.
Redland High's Philosophy Club hosted a visit from Chris Gifford, a tutor from the Royal Institute of Philosophy. A specialist in paradoxes and enigmas, he introduced a series of problems around logic and language, and he provoked some challenging discussions - especially when he wrote on the board 'This sentence is not true' and asked if it was true or false.
On 11 November, the Brass Ensemble were invited to play at the Armistice Day service at Whiteladies Road War Memorial.
