Please note that the School is a separate entity from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. Our main site Downside Road, is situated in Clifton in the North of Bristol. Our full address is: 1-3 Downside Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 2XF.
Please note that we do not have visitor parking on site however, please use parkopedia to find local parking.
If you are travelling by train, Bristol Temple Meads is the main station, from there you can get the number 8 bus to Downfield Road, just opposite the back of the school. Please note that there are planned maintenance works taking place on rail lines across the South West over this weekend, so please take this into account before you travel.
Alternatively, we are in close walking distance of Clifton Down Station, but please check the times of the connecting trains from the mainline station.Register Here
