The Red Maids Society exists to keep former pupils and staff of the Red Maids' School, Bristol, in touch with each other and to share news of the School and of other old girls around the world. We currently have almost 1,200 members, many of whom live in Bristol or the South West.
The Spring 2015 magazine is available to members by post or on the newsletter page.
We are looking for new Committee members to take over some key jobs in 2016. Please take a look at the roles available on our Committee page, and then view the 'job descriptions' link on the same page.
The Membership Secretary's post has now been filled, but we are still looking for a Gifts Officer and an Events Organiser.
Watch this space for news of the Society's 110th Anniversary celebrations next year.
See our Reunions page for a link to Society Gifts.
We had record numbers at our autumn events and the tours of the new facilities were a great success. Check out our gallery opposite for the new-look Burfield House (formerly the Main Building).
The Chairman's "Find Fiver" Appeal
Announced in the Summer 2014 magazine, this appeal has passed the £2,000 mark; one third of the total in one third of the time. Our target is to raise the equivalent of £5 from every member by May 2016 for a scholarship to help an external candidate join Red Maids' for the Sixth Form. See above right for the total so far and ways to donate, together with a link to the Gift Aid Form.

Please log in on the newsletter page to see whether you or a friend are on the list - then please update us.
Careers - Eight Years On
Are you working in an interesting profession? Are you happy to be contacted by current or former pupils about your career path or networking opportunities? Could you come back to school to talk to the girls?
Each year an event called 'Eight Years On' brings former pupils back to chat to the current girls about what they are doing. Please get in touch or contact the school if you would like to inspire young women or offer advice: firstname.lastname@example.org .
