A very warm welcome to Redland Green School.
I was delighted and honoured to be appointed as headteacher at Redland Green School (RGS) in January 2019, having started here at RGS as Deputy Headteacher in 2013, then Head of School in 2017. With a clear understanding of the school and the capabilities of our students, I have set a clear ambition to build on the already considerable successes of the school since it was founded in 2006.
RGS is graded as an Outstanding School by Ofsted and we are one of the top performing state schools in Bristol. One of my key ambitions, now being put into practice by our leadership teams, is the development and enrichment of the curriculum, with a view to instilling yet further, a love of learning and ambition across all subjects and for all students whatever their starting points.
Importantly, our school is built on the key foundations and core values of:
Respect | Ambition | Responsibility
We aim for all of our students to feel safe, secure and supported throughout their journey with us, developing as confident, independent and resilient individuals both in their learning and in their willingness to embrace all of the opportunities that they will have access to over the coming years.
Our House and pastoral system is very important in developing the ‘spirit’ and ‘community’ of Redland Green.
We are clear in our curriculum intent that our purpose is for students to develop a love of learning at Redland Green and to experience the excitement and wonder of the subjects they study, delivered by talented and experienced staff with a passion for their subjects and for developing our students knowledge and understanding.
Our staff and students are rightly proud of our school, its high standards, its values and its strong emphasis on developing the ‘whole child’. Our House and pastoral system is very important in developing the ‘spirit’ and ‘community’ of Redland Green. Guiding our young people to be able to make good decisions and demonstrate respect, understanding and tolerance is fundamental in our approach.
We ensure there are many opportunities for our students to involve themselves in the wider leadership of our school community.
We also believe that we are developing future citizens and leaders and as such have plenty of opportunities for students to develop those skills and levels of responsibilities, whether becoming our student president, a prefect or house captain, sports captain or subject ambassador. We ensure there are many opportunities for our students to involve themselves in the wider leadership of our school community.
Ultimately though, we are ambitious for each individual student and want our students to truly enjoy their time at Redland Green School and to develop a love and understanding of learning which will enable them to successfully continue in their chosen future pathway.
