Working closely with local communities
RET has worked in close partnership with parents, communities, and diocesan authorities to set up secondary schools. These schools are inclusive comprehensives with high academic standards, serving their locality and working as part of their local family of schools. Both RET, and the founding groups with whom we work, werefirmly resolved that our schools would all be judged to be good or outstanding by OfSTED and their communities within two years of opening. This has been the case with the four already inspected. For more information about our schools please follow the links to their websites:
Bristol Free School was opened in 2011. It was established by RET in partnership with Parents’ Voice, a local campaigning group.
Bristol Free School received its first Ofsted inspection in February 2013 and was judged to be good with outstanding leadership and management, and outstanding behaviour.
Bristol's first intake of 72 children made progress in the top 25% of schools nationally. The school's English Baccalaureate success, and English and maths C+ grades were significantly above national average.
The school is heavily oversubscribed and at the request of its Local Authority increased its admissions number.
