Colston’s Primary School 70th Anniversary

Colston’s Primary School was established in 1947 on the site of houses that had been used by Colston’s Girls School during the Second World War. After the war, the local authority wanted to create new state run schools across the city as part of the rebirth of Bristol that also saw new housing, roads and new international relations like the twinning with Bordeaux and Hannover.
