About St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School

St Mary Redcliffe and Temple is a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. 52% of students in the main school are from black and minority ethnic backgrounds and 21% of students have been recorded as being entitled to Pupil Premium funding. We educate relatively high numbers of Children in Care. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses over 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City. The School is proud of its academic record and 80% of GCSE grades were at grade 4 (equivalent to a C) or above. 85% of students achieved 5 or more grade 4s or above. 41% of students achieved 3 or more grade 7s or above (equivalent to an A). Sixth form results are high with a 98% pass rate and 75% at grade C or above. 24% got A* and A grades. Most sixth form students continue on to Higher Education, including 8 taking up Oxbridge places. The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding. We were judged outstanding in three church school (SIAMS) inspections (2007, 2012 and March 2017). Ofsted remarked that “Church school status makes an important and distinctive contribution to the school’s exceptionally positive values and beliefs. Leaders and the highly effective governing body ensure that students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are given the highest possible priority.” “The promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is extremely impressive and contributes enormously to the welcoming ethos of the school. Equality of opportunity is vigorously promoted; discrimination in any form is not tolerated. Students are highly reflective about matters of faith and personal responsibility; their social awareness is remarkably perceptive.”
