Our Partner School
The opening of Cathedral Primary School forms a new family of schools for Bristol, together with our partner school, Bristol Cathedral Choir School (BCCS).
BCCS is Bristol’s oldest school, tracing its origins back to the establishment of St Augustine’s Abbey in the 12th century, and possibly even earlier. In September 2008, it became an 11-18 co-educational Academy, specialising in Music and Mathematics. Since then, it has consistently been Bristol’s most over-subscribed secondary school.
Cathedral Primary School children will benefit substantially from links with the Academy. They will have access to many BCCS facilities, including the modern dining hall in the Cresswell Centre, outdoor play areas and the senior school’s state-of-the-art music centre. In addition, BCCS staff will often be on hand to provide specialist subject expertise and we will be encouraging some students in the secondary school to work with the primary children. The primary school will nonetheless be a separate school, with contact between senior and primary school pupils strictly limited for safety and safeguarding reasons, including at break times and lunch time.
