A new secondary school being built at Redland in north Bristol is to be called Redland Green School.

The governing board met on Wednesday night to vote from a shortlist of four proposed names.

Governor Tim Trout said geography played a part in the decision which rejected the other nominations - Courthill, Cranbrook and Paul Dirac.

The 30m school, which will house more than 945 pupils plus 450 sixth form students, is due to open in 2007.
