Teaching in Bristol

Bristol is one of the most exciting, diverse, friendly and beautiful places to live in the UK with an international reputation as a good place to live. It has all the facilities and attractions of a major city, but with easy access to coast and countryside.

If you are passionate about teaching, a Bristol school is a great opportunity to test yourself, develop and grow.  The city has over a hundred schools, most Ofsted-rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’, each offering unique challenges and opportunities.  All Bristol schools share a commitment to nurturing talent, and work together to provide support for NQTs as well as teachers who are looking for professional development opportunities.

An Learning in Education Challenge Group has been set up within the city to focus on continuing to raise the attainment of all students through formal learning in Bristol schools, colleges and universities. The education-specific group wants to continue to increase the number of good and outstanding schools, by recruiting and retaining the best education workforce, and focus on raising the attainment of underachieving students, through the development of an Excellence in Schools Group.
