Ashley Down Schools Federation. Two Schools, One Vision:

Creating connections in learning to build great futures. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you from everyone at Ashley Down Schools Federation.

We are a school federation that brings together Ashley Down Primary School and Brunel Field Primary School.

We have a Federation Leadership Team that works across both schools with the whole staff to build a shared vision for the Federation. The Headteacher of Ashley Down Primary School is Amy Sood and Headteacher of Brunel Field Primary School is Don Collins. 

We pride ourselves on our welcoming and nurturing school environments that respect and celebrate diversity. 

About The Schools


Ashley Down Primary School was formed in September 2015, bringing together Ashley Down Infant School and Ashley Down Junior School in the Victorian building on Downend Road which has served the community of Ashley Down and Horfield for over 100 years.

Children join Ashley Down Primary School in Reception (Foundation Stage) and remain with us through to the end of Year 6 (KS2). We admit 60 children into two Reception classes (30 children in each class) every year.


Brunel Field Primary School is located on Arthur Milton Street, off Ashley Down Road, next to Gloucestershire County Cricket Club and City of Bristol College.

It was opened in January 2011 to accommodate children from Reception (Foundation Stage) through to the end of Year 6 (KS2) and admits a total of 60 children into two Reception classes (30 children in each class) every year.

Brunel Field continues the long Ashley Down tradition of providing highly successful and nurturing education.
