Situated toward the northern edge of Yate and serving both the town and adjacent South Gloucestershire villages, Brimsham Green School has modern facilities grouped within a single site. It has a humanities block, design and technology block, art block, mathematics block, English block, music block, languages block, a study centre and sports hall, and they are all on one floor except for the humanities block which has a lift providing access to the first floor.
In recent years the school has undergone a number of modernisations including the building of a new Design Technology block where the cricket cages had previously been and with wide ranging extensions made to the English and Music departments. The Administration block has also seen the library move out into the English block. The school operates a sixth form provision which offers A Levels and BTECs as programmes of study for students. The sixth form is offered in conjunction with Chipping Sodbury School in Chipping Sodbury.
Brimsham Green School was built in the late 1970s, it was supposed to be called Brinsham Green School, after Bringsome Lane at nearby Yate Rocks. Owing to a spelling error, however, it was in fact called Brimsham Green School.
