Discover Fairfield

Discover a unique educational experience at Fairfield School, our exceptional co-educational independent primary school on the outskirts of Bristol. 

Our close-knit, small school environment helps us to cultivate each child's own potential and foster a love of learning through our creative curriculum.

Beyond academics, we offer a diverse range of extra-curricular activities, fostering a holistic learning experience.

Contact us to arrange a tour of Fairfield School, where individuality is celebrated, values are instilled and a well-rounded education prepares children for a successful future.


Welcome from our Head

At the heart of our school lies the belief that every child is a unique individual; no child goes unnoticed. 

In creating a secure, happy and vibrant environment within our small school, where everyone knows everyone, we aim to nurture and develop each child's potential and talents, so that when he or she leaves us at the end of Year 6, they do so with high levels of self-confidence, self-esteem and a set of values which will equip them to deal with future challenges. 

Our values are based on mutual respect, tolerance and consideration towards others and within our community each child finds his or her unique place. Whilst we achieve outstanding examination results, enabling our pupils to move on with confidence at the age of 11 to the senior school of their choice, we believe education is about far more than examinations; our children learn to become part of a community, they develop confidence, their own opinions and an understanding of the modern world. 

We also provide a broad programme of extra-curricular activities and have close links with the local community.

I look forward to welcoming you to one of our Open Events or individual tours.
