Bristol Cathedral Choir School is an Academy with over a thousand students. BCCS is part of Cathedral Schools Trust. There are currently four Houses in the pastoral system. The tutoring system for Years 7-11 is vertical, comprising students from each year group.

Students attend BCCS from all over Bristol. Whilst it has a rich heritage as a Cathedral School with a Christian ethos, there are no faith admissions criteria.  BCCS has a comprehensive intake; students have a wide range of educational, emotional and behavioural needs.

This involves the planning and evaluation of interventions and working closely with teachers, SLT, SENDco and parents. House Leaders will also be responsible for involving external agencies where appropriate. Managing and promoting strategies for successful student learning behaviours is a key part of the role.

Within BCCS, CST and National Teaching School status, we are committed to high quality CPD.
