School Description by Ofsted

Information about the school
Colston's Girls School is a specialist language school which opened in September 2008.
Previously a selective independent school, and founded in 1891 by the Merchant Venturer
Edward Colston, it is a smaller than average secondary school. However, it is increasing in
size year on year. Students in Years 7, 8, 9, 12 and 13 joined the school when it became
an academy and thus reflect a fully comprehensive intake. Just under half the girls come
from minority ethnic backgrounds but the proportions who speak English as an additional
language are below the national average. The proportion of students who have special
educational needs and/or disabilities is below the national average. The proportion of girls
known to be eligible for free school meals is just below the national average. Very few
students join or leave the academy other than at the start of the school year. About one-
third of the girls stay for the sixth form with the remainder joining from other schools.
Colston's Girls is one of three academies in the city that are sponsored by the Society of
Merchant Venturers and there are close links between them.
Two of Her Majesty's Inspectors carried out a monitoring visit a year ago and judged it to
be making good progress.
