Redland Green School

RGS Bristol


Redland Green School has been rated as an ‘Outstanding’ school by Ofsted in its recent inspection This is the first inspection since it became an academy in 2012 and shows the tremendous developments that have taken place since we opened ten years ago.

We recognise that Ofsted is only one way of measuring a school’s success, however we believe that this report is an accurate reflection of our staff and pupils’ commitment and diligence.

Ofsted inspectors visited the school for two days in May and found it to be ‘Outstanding’ overall and in all judgements. The report states “achievement across the school, including the sixth form is outstanding”. They were especially impressed by the personal development of the students and their preparation for the role they will play as responsible citizens in society.

What Ofsted said:

Here are some quotes from the inspection team who visited us in May 2016:


Staff have high aspirations and expectations for pupils, regardless of background or starting point. Pupils have high aspirations for themselves.

Pupils are polite, mature and show a mutual respect for adults and each other. They display a strong sense of belonging and fully enjoy their time at the school. They are very proud to be a member of the school.

An exceptional range of opportunities offered outside of the classroom are all well attended and highly valued by both pupils and parents. Clubs and trips, including university visits, sports teams and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme offer additional experiences for pupils to develop their skills and interests.

A culture of care, support and respect is nurtured through a well-established tutoring system. Pupils speak highly about the acceptance of every person at the academy despite background, belief, faith or sexuality.

The most able pupils, who constitute a large majority of the school population, are challenged well. As a result, their progress continues to rise. For pupils who started the school with lower reading ages, intensive support is rapidly increasing their progress.

Learners in the sixth form benefit from highly personalised programmes of study, excellent teaching and other non-qualification activities. Learners are well prepared for their next steps.

The headteacher’s leadership is fundamental to sustaining the high levels of performance. Her vision, commitment and drive to achieve the very best education for each pupil within the school are commendable.

Leaders across the school share and support the headteacher’s vision. Consequently, the school’s ethos of ‘Respect, Ambition and Responsibility’ permeates throughout. 

Governors know the school well and continually provide excellent challenge to senior leaders to improve the quality of education for pupils. Governors have a clear vision for the school's future direction.
