The most crowded school in Bristol had almost 250 more students than registered spaces
Bristol has more than a dozen full or overcrowded primary and secondary schools, new figures show.
The Education Policy Institute said areas with schools operating close to or over capacity see teaching staff facing additional demand. A school is at or in excess of capacity when the number of pupils enrolled is greater than or equal to its number of places.
Department for Education (DfE) figures show 17 schools were at or over capacity in Bristol in the 2021-22 academic year. Of them, eight were primary schools and nine were secondary schools. The most crowded school in the city was St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School which had 1,774 pupils and 1,530 places last year. It was over capacity by close to 16%.
