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. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


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.


For further details about the Sixth Form, please see the Sixth Form area of the website.
