Redland Green School is a secondary school in Bristol, England, having facilities for 950 students aged 11 to 16 year-olds, 450 post-16 students, and dedicated facilities for 50 students with learning difficulties. The headteacher is Sarah Baker.
The school was built in 2006 at a cost of £36 million: £8 million higher than the original budget. After the overspend the Bristol Evening Post stated "Spending rules on major city council projects are being tightened up to try to ensure blunders such as at Redland Green School are never repeated".
There were several suggestions for the name of the school. These included Paul Dirac, which was portrayed in the local press as the probable name for the school. Previously the school was known as New North Bristol School.
The effective catchment area of the school is small as a result of its continuing popularity. For the 2014 intake the furthest distance from the school that places were offered to children in the 'area of first priority' was 1.137 km. In 2013 it was 1.491 km and in 2012 1.271 km.
Post 16 Centre
The school's Sixth Form, North Bristol Post 16 Centre, opened in September 2007. It is made up of two 'learning communities', at Redland Green, and at Cotham School. It is the sixth form for both schools, as well as its feeder schools: Fairfield School, Henbury School, Orchard School Bristol, and Oasis Academy Brightstowe. It also accepts a limited number of applicants from other schools.
