Year 7 Open Events for entry in September 2022


We will be opening our doors to current Year 6 students at our Year 7 Open Event on THURSDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER from 4 pm, finishing at 8 pm.  Please click the link below to attend one of the Principal's Presentations, which start at 4 pm and run every 30 minutes until 7 pm (4 pm, 4:30 pm, 5:00 pm, 5:30 pm, 6:00 pm and 6:30 pm).  This will be followed by a guided tour of the school with our current Year 9 students.

You will be able to visit: Art, PE, Music, Food Technology, Science, Computing, Maths, Languages, Humanities, English and Drama.  Our SEN team will also be available at the end of the tour.  You should allow at least one hour for your visit.

Due to limited capacity, we ask that visits are restricted to Year 6 students only and one parent/carer per family.  Access for pushchairs/prams is difficult around the school and we ask that younger siblings are cared for at home.   If you require wheelchair/other access to the school, do please let us know by emailing

If you are not available to attend this event, we will be holding a Year 7 remote webinar on Tuesday 5th October at 6 pm.  A link will be made available on the Montpelier High School website on the afternoon of 5th October.  There is no need to pre-register.

There is no further opportunity to tour the school outside of the event on Thursday 30th September.

There is lots of additional information on our website and a list of FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (please click here) about the school and its admissions process.  There is also information available on the Government's Compare Schools website (click here).

You may also wish to view the School's admissions policy, which details the oversubscription criteria.  A link to Bristol City Council's website for parents/carers to register and make their selection of preferred schools will be made available in September.  

If you would like to see a little taste of what Montpelier High School is about, please have a look at the presentations from the 2020 open events when we were still known as Colston's Girls' School.
