One of our parents has recently made the following comment:
"We took a bit of a punt choosing Fairlawn, with it being a new school. We did because we liked the idea of a smaller school, compared to some of the others near us, and came away with a really positive feeling after the open evening (that they would strike a nice balance between getting the most out of the kids, without being too pushy or focused on league tables). We're really glad we did because for us (and for our son, most importantly) it's worked out really well. There's a real community feeling being part of a new school, and the morale among the staff seems really high. The teaching assistants all seem really warm, and our son even knows the lunchtime staff. I trust the Head Teacher - she seems keen to focus on the broader development of the child rather than just things like numeracy and literacy, but our sense is that it is also a genuinely educational environment. The only challenge is the flip side of one of the positives - being a new school they were still completing some of the building when our son started (that's all complete now) and they had to move classrooms a couple of times in the first year. All fairly minor stuff really. Overall we couldn't be more pleased. There is a group of parents who are hoping to 'green' the playground a bit more and I'm sure over time, the school will start to develop more of a strong identity.
Welcome to Fairlawn by Mrs Julie Molesworth, Head Teacher.
Fairlawn School is a member of the family of Colston’s Girls’ School Trust (CGST) Schools. CGS Trust is a Bristol based multi-academy trust formed in 2012 which seeks to provide outstanding education for its pupils. Currently CGS Trust has six schools – Colston’s Girls’ School, the Dolphin School, the Kingfisher School, Fairlawn School, Bannerman Road Community Academy and Barton Hill Academy. CGS Trust aims to further develop its family of schools over the coming years and therefore it is a very exciting time for all members of the CGS Trust. As the Head of Fairlawn School it is a privilege to welcome new children and families into the school.
Families will be impressed by the space, charm and character of the building and the facilities on offer at the new school.
“It is such a privilege to become the custodian of a magnificent Victorian school building which has already seen many children through its doors. The primary aim of the CGS Trust is to enable all pupils to develop a deep passion for learning which will enable them to achieve their ambitions and become active citizens and leaders. The next generation of children to be educated at Fairlawn School will benefit from a curriculum with a focus towards science, technology, engineering, art/design and mathematics (STEAM). I look forward to welcoming all the new children and families to our wonderful new school.”
Fairlawn School will build to a maximum of 420 pupils by 2021. It will give priority for places to those children who live closest. The school plans to work closely with families and others in the community, and to use the local environment as a focus for learning
