Redmaids' High School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating



"> An outstanding school with an extensive range of opportunities that allows girls to really flourish.
“Wonderful School”

"> My daughter is currently in Year 9 and I cannot say enough good things about school. She is doing extremely well and has a great work ethic encouraged by the school and her peers. The school and grounds itself is beautiful, modern and well equips and the teachers work really hard to get to know your child. The school is run by a fantastic headmistress who really cares about the school and knows her children. Definitely worth every penny.
“100% recommended”

"> My daughter has been at Redmaids High since Year 3. She's now in Year 8 and is thriving across all areas. Academically and pastorally, I couldn't expect more. I am always amazed and how well the teachers really know my daughter, and help to get the most out of her. It's 'cool' to achieve and, as a result, she has a great work ethic, wanting to better herself all the time. Would highly recommend this school.

News, Photos and Open Days from Redmaids' High School

Last update: 02 July 2022

From September 2020, Mr Paul Dwyer will take over as Head of Redmaids' High Senior School, following on from Isabel Tobias who was its Headmistress for 19 years.

Mr Dwyer, who joins the Bristol-based girls' school from his previous Deputy Head post at North London Collegiate School, completed both his undergraduate degree in History and his PGCE at Oxford.

He has strong experience in girls’ education, having previously been the Director of Sixth Form at Putney High School.

As well as his expertise in teaching, Mr Dwyer is known for encouraging teachers across the globe to challenge themselves. He regularly speaks at national and international conferences on education, hosts a podcast designed to help teachers reflect on their practice and was President and a Founding Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching.

Groups of Redmaids' High students were able to meet the candidates during the recruitment process. The nine girls who met Mr Dwyer, a married father with a two-year-old daughter, recalled that he was highly approachable and personable, adding that he recognised the high importance we place on tradition, and shared their desire for more sustainable practices within school to address climate change.

“I’m honoured to have been selected as the next Head of Redmaids’ High School,” says Mr Dwyer. “It is a vibrant and modern school, steeped in history with an excellent academic record and I’m looking forward to joining the RHS community.

“The founding aims of the School, with its provision of bursaries and scholarships to ambitious and able students, resonate strongly with me. I was the first of my family to attend university and did so thanks to the Sutton Trust – an organisation that identifies potential in children from non-traditional backgrounds.

“I know first-hand the benefit that a strong and supportive educational environment can have and can see that Redmaids’ High has this same life-changing impact on young women in Bristol."
