The Year 13 students and staff of Bristol Free School are celebrating another excellent set of A Level results this year.

Congratulations also go to Fiona who will be reading Computer Science at Cambridge, Hannah who will be reading Chemistry at Oxford and Maisie who will be reading History at Oxford.




 Welcome to BFS Sixth Form


Welcome to Bristol Free School Sixth Form. A new, exciting and thriving learning community, offering a wide range of academic and vocational courses, preparing young adults for university, apprenticeships and successful employment. 

We were delighted to be judged as Good in our first Ofsted inspection in March 2018. Inspectors commented on our 'clear aspirational environment' and that 'students 'make good progress' across our wide range of subjects.

As well as our reputation for high academic standards BFS Sixth Form is passionate about offering its students a high level of pastoral support, offering an engaging environment and ensuring all students have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities from a range of sport to Model United Nations to Jazz Band. 

BFS Sixth Form prides itself on ensuring our students have positive relationships with peers and with teachers so that they can maximise their progress. Inspectors said 'Positive relationships between teachers and students assist their learning and progress' and that 'Students value the support they receive from staff for both academic and pastoral needs'. 

BFS Sixth Form is, above all, a happy and inclusive Sixth Form, a place where students work hard and where they find friendship, enrichment and support. It is an amazing place to work and study, and we look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form community. 

Come and be a part of something special! 

 Black Lives Matter

Over a week as passed since Bristol made the headline press for the protests in conjunction with the tragic death of George Floyd in America and the toppling of the statue of Edward Colston. The Black Lives Matters movement has been a symbolic reminder that we must stamp out any racial hatred, discrimination and prejudice. Bristol Free School is committed to supporting our community in opposing racism in all its forms, including upholding anti-racist values.

BFS Sixth Form Council members Mya and Stacey wanted to share their views with our school and wider community and we are thrilled that they, and other students across our school, want to work together to ensure this movement and the work surrounding it is promoted and discussed across all year groups.

You can watch their videos here and here.
