EducationA key part of the urban village concept is to provide excellent facilities on site. This includes a brand new primary school – Wallscourt Farm Academy – which is growing fast. Benefitting from all new equipment, and a top quality staff, this purpose built school has already proved a huge hit with local residents. Alternatively, you can choose Shield Road or Charborough Road primary schools, both within easy reach.
Beyond primary level, Bristol offers an excellent choice of both state and independent education, with Badminton School and Red Maid’s School providing top class private schooling for girls, along side Bristol Cathedral School, Bristol Grammar and Colston’s School.

The city offers two football teams, Bristol Rovers and Bristol City and you can also find top flight rugby union close by with both Gloucester and Bath. Golfers can choose between several quality local courses, including Filton Golf Club, Woodlands Golf and Country Club and Bristol Golf Club. Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood are both within easy reach, providing a treat for racing fans and socialites alike.
