About Us

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 to replace a former school in Crews Hole.

The school has expanded to four form entry to help cope with the high numbers of children in East Bristol. We are now an all-through four form entry school with a maximum of 120 children in all year groups.

The school is an interesting mix of old and new. The old part of the school is based around three separate halls with classrooms leading off them. Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 (upstairs, with their own roof terrace), are housed in our new building which is at the back of the school, creating a central and impressive ‘heart’ of the school. The buildings combine 1905 grandeur with 21st century efficiency and beauty.

Outside we have three playgrounds, a ball court, a grass play area and sports field with private access path, changing rooms, toilets and storage. Reception classes have a fantastic large and enclosed outside learning environment. We also have a developing forest school area and an award-winning garden and allotment.
