Ensuring that young people in South Bristol have good access to education is a priority for Bristol City Council.

Plans have been approved for new secondary schools on Daventry Rd for 900 students and Silverthorne Lane which will provide 1,600 new school places.

Alongside the existing schools in the area, this should meet the requirements for school places in BS3 as the population grows.

To bridge the gap until the new schools open, a temporary secondary school will be provided on the site between Spring St and St Luke’s Rd, and is scheduled to open January 2024.

There are currently sufficient primary school places in BS3 to meet the predicted demand of the growing population.
