Air Balloon Hill Primary School opened on the 1st of September 2009 following the amalgamation of two successful, but separate, infant and junior schools. The school, which is situated in the East Bristol suburb of St George, was built in 1905 and architecturally is fairly typical of schools built at that time.
In 2012-2013 extensive work is being carried out and the school will benefit from some fabulous new classrooms, a state of the art front entrance and an extended school kitchen.
The School Buildings
The old part of the school is based around three separate halls with classrooms leading off them. Reception, Year 1 and Y6 (upstairs, with their own roof terrace), are housed in our new building which is at the back of the school. The outside areas, the kitchen, field and link entrance, are currently been built and developed.
The finished buildings will combine the best of old and new – 1905 grandeur with 21st century efficiency and beauty.
