Colston’s Girls’ School Trust is a multi-academy Trust formed in 2012 which seeks to provide outstanding education for its pupils. Currently the Trust has six schools – its flagship school, Colston’s Girls’ School, the Dolphin School, Kingfisher School, Fairlawn School, Bannerman Road Community Academy and Barton Hill Primary – with a vision to expand further over the coming period.
The primary aim of CGS Trust is to enable all pupils within the Trust to develop a deep passion for learning and the academic and character skills necessary to instil high aspirations. This will enable them to achieve their ambitions and become active citizens and leaders, regardless of socio economic background. Our belief is that all young people can succeed if they have access to exceptional education.
The Trust's vision for education is to ensure that all pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their lives. CGS Trust has a set of core beliefs and values which is embedded in all its schools whilst allowing each learning community to develop a distinctive identity relevant to its local community. The core values across the family of schools are: Respect, Responsibility, Curiosity, Resilience
The strategic aims of the Trust include
Securing high quality education provision that generates high aspirations and achievement
Establishing consistency across each school
Establishing a network approach to school improvement
Establish clear performance measures and accepted procedures for ensuring outstanding provision
Establish outstanding leadership and Governance within all schools of MATs
Colston’s Girls’ School Trust’s vision is one where all students will achieve to the best of their individual ability, inside and outside the classroom. As members of ‘Green Schools’ with a focus on languages, students will develop an understanding of their position in the wider world in preparation for life as global citizens.
