Welcome to New Siblands School

New Siblands School occupies two sites in the market town of Thornbury on the outskirts of Bristol. The Primary School shares the building and facilities with our friends and partners Gillingstool primary school. We are two distinctive schools with some shared values – two schools, one community. Our Secondary School site is about half a mile away and offers our pupils a fantastic new learning space to move onto as they get older. We have an active programme of inclusive learning opportunities with local secondary schools Castle School and Marlwood School.
