Colston's Girls' School
Colston's Girls' School (CGS) is an unique academy that attracts a comprehensive, ethnically diverse, comprehensive student body from across Greater Bristol. Academic excellence, traditional values and cutting-edge facilities ensure students receive the very best education.
The school, which opened in 1891, cherishes its history and traditions, while looking ahead to a future in which its students will play an active and responsible role in shaping society.
CGS has exceptionally skilled and creative staff as well as dedicated and well qualified governors. Superb facilities enable the team to deliver teaching and learning of the highest standard.
As a state-funded academy for the last decade, CGS has built a reputation for excellence. It is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and is among the highest performing in Bristol at both A-level and GCSE.
Students are stretched and supported in their learning as appropriate and are encouraged to tackle challenging concepts and ideas.
There are endless opportunities for young people to achieve success within and beyond lessons, including an extensive enrichment programme and valuable business links.
CGS also has a strong pastoral team to support students in feeling confident and secure when they face challenges.
The school’s position as a Venturers Trust academy, co-sponsored by the Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol, brings many advantages for students.
The creation of V6 allows those benefits to be shared even more widely.
