About the School

The school is situated 8 miles south of Bristol between the villages of Chew Magna and Chew Stoke. It stands on a 30-acre site in open countryside overlooking Chew Valley Lake. The school buildings are surrounded by very pleasant grounds and landscaped gardens. There are extensive playing fields and tennis courts.

The school buildings were largely completed in four stages and the school is now well equipped with specialist rooms for all subjects. Computing facilities are well developed and our Science and Design Technology suites are also equipped with state of the art technology.

The school serves the 120 square miles of the Chew Valley but regularly attracts students from Bristol.  The Local Authority's Admission Number of 210 usually includes up to 50 students who join the school from beyond the area of prime responsibility.
