Royal Representative Opens Early Years Building at Redland High Infants School with QEH


Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant, Mary Prior MBE JP, has officially opened the new Early Years building at Redland High Infants with QEH.

Staff and governors from both Redland High and QEH attended the opening ceremony on 17th November to witness the cutting of the ribbon and the unveiling of the plaque. A number of former pupils attended the ceremony, including an Old Boy of the School who attended Redland High Junior School prior to 1956, when the School originally accepted boys, who declared the new development to be “simply marvellous!”

The building, designed and constructed by Rollalong Design, is an environmentally sympathetic extension to Redland High Junior School’s existing building and has enabled Redland High School to offer an extra 24 places for boys and girls at Early Years Foundation Stage, with a natural progression to QEH in Year 3.

Mary Prior said she was delighted to be invited to open the building and commented, “This is a truly wonderful development and an extremely exciting time for both Redland High and QEH.”

Caroline Bateson, Headmistress at Redland High School, said, “We are extremely excited that the new Early Years building is now open to our pupils. Places at Redland High Infants with QEH are becoming ever more sought after and this new building allows us to satisfy this demand, while at the same time enhancing our learning facilities for our very youngest pupils.”

There was also a separate opening ceremony for pupils at Redland High Infants with QEH on Wednesday 19 November, when Amanda Mitchison, author of ‘My First Pet Dragon’, visited the School.
