Travel and Parking Information


By Car
The main entrance to the School is from Somerset Square. This is a one way street. Those driving to the School using a SatNav system should note that the School postcode (BS1 6RT) will take them to the rear of the school with no public access.  Postcode BS1 6PG will direct drivers to Somerset Square and the main entrance to the School.



Please note that the School does not have on-site parking facilities for students and parents/carers. Disabled drivers can be accommodated on site with notice. Please contact our receptionists on 0117 377 2100 for details. There is a ramp to the Visitors entrance which is accessed across the bridge from Somerset Square, and a lift to all floors in the Main and Temple Colston building is available.

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 only until 5.00pm. You can park for up to 15 minutes free of charge in the pay and display bays. Longer periods of pay and display parking cost £1 per hour up to a maximum of 3 hours.

There are public car parks nearby in Portwall Lane (opposite St Mary Redcliffe Church) and on Cumberland Road, near the old General Hospital site, providing longer term parking.


By Train

Bristol Temple Meads station is only a 10 minute walk from the school (cross Temple Gate and turn right. Turn left into Redcliff Mead. Take the second left into Somerset Square).


By Bus

There are good bus services to the area – routes 24/25, 52, 75/76, and 89/90 all stop on nearby Redcliff Hill (BS1 6RB). Other routes stop at Temple Quay and Lewins Mead, in the Centre, which is only a short walk away across Queen Square, or outside Bristol Temple Meads station. A route planner map to the school has been produced and is available to download here.


Access to Visitor Reception is up the steps or ramp from Somerset Square.
