Our school is looking for new foundation governors. If you are a practising Christian (from any Church) who might like to consider this vital role now or in the future, please contact me in the first instance via email This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are particularly looking for people who have some availability during the working day/week and who are interested in Admissions. An ordained minister in Bristol comments,

 

 

Being a governor is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things I do. If I had time I’d be biting your hand off to be a foundation governor at SMRT.

 

Many volunteers are recruited because someone else encouraged them, so if you’re not in a position to volunteer yourself, why not encourage someone else to get in touch. 

 

Many thanks,

Simon Stevens

Many SMRT families will have been following the Bristol Post’s annual Gold Star awards. 2017 sees, for the first time, the chance for the public to vote on which of the finalists should be the overall Hero. All eleven nominees are really noteworthy but it would be great if you would vote for Beranger our very recent leaver with such a powerful story on his achievement and motivation. 

 

Please vote by November 16 here:

One of the other nominees, Amy Kington, is also a former student at the school as were her brothers and sister.

We hold our second open evening for the Sixth Form Centre on Thursday 9 November for students from other schools, who make up over 60% of our student body. Doors will open for this evening at 6:00pm to start at 6:30pm, and the evening will end at 8:15pm.

 

The evening will have three talks at 6:30pm, 7:00pm and 7:30pm in the hall of our main school site. You are encouraged to aim to attend the talk before researching subjects, but when the hall is full we will redirect applicants to visit subject teachers in classrooms and return to the talk later. Teachers of subjects with specialist facilities will be available in their main school teaching rooms while all other subjects will be represented within the Sixth Form Centre.


See the map in the 'Contact Us' section of the website for information on how to find our Main Site and Sixth Form Site, which are only 100 metres apart. There will be limited parking available in our Main School Car Park and visitors are advised to use other local parking. Parking is extensively detailed in the school contact form here.

** Please read carefully. There are two evenings catering for separate audiences **


We have two open evenings for the Sixth Form Centre:

* The first evening on Monday 16 October 2017 is for current students of St Mary Redcliffe school

* A second evening on Thursday 9 November 2017 is for students from other schools, who make up over 60% of our student body

You are strongly encouraged to come to the most appropriate evening for you, since the talks will have a different focus and the specialist science, music, art and technology facilities in our main school building will only be open for viewing on the second evening. However, if you cannot make this then please feel free to attend the alternative evening but please be aware that capacity at the first evening is limited.

Doors will open for both evenings at 6:00pm to start at 6:30pm and the evenings will end at 8:15pm.

The first evening, for current Redcliffe students, on Monday 16 October will take place entirely within the Sixth Form Centre with a talk at 6:30pm and teachers available after this. There is only one talk at this event and a reminder that capacity is limited.

The second evening, for students from other schools, on Thursday 9 November will have three talks at 6:30pm, 7:00pm and 7:30pm in the hall of our main school site. You are encouraged to aim to attend the talk before researching subjects, but when the hall is full we will redirect applicants to visit subject teachers in classrooms and return to the talk later. Teachers of the subjects with specialist facilities mentioned above will be available in their main school teaching rooms while all other subjects will be represented within the Sixth Form Centre.

See the map in the 'Contact Us' section of the website for information on how to find our Main Site and Sixth Form Site, which are only 100 metres apart. There will be limited parking available in our Main School Car Park and visitors are advised to use other local parking. Parking is extensively detailed in the 'Contact Us' section.

The Headteacher will give her talk in the Main Hall starting at approximately 6:30pm, 7:15pm and 8:00pm. If the Hall is full you may be asked to wait until the next talk. A tour of the School will be available on a rolling basis throughout the evening.


Parking
Parking on the school site is extremely restricted. The area surrounding the school is subject to a residents’ parking scheme. As a result Somerset Square and Somerset Street are resident parking only, and you will need a permit to park in these places. There is limited pay and display parking available in Prewett Street, Guinea Street and Ship Lane, which is shared with residents, and is pay and display until 5.00pm and free after this time.

Please see the table in the attachment below for further details of public parking in the local area. The attached document also provides information for disabled access and public transport links.
