New signs have been put up at Montpelier High School after it decided to cut ties with Edward Colston.
Colston’s Girls’ School, which was named after the slave-trader, announced that it would change its name last year.
The new name for the school was decided upon by a combination of staff and students who said they wanted to "forge a new identity".
There was a list of names, including Montpelier, Liberty and Concordia. They were also given the choice of College, High School and School.
A total of 62% of students and staff voted in favour of Montpelier High School.
Year 11 pupil Hemlata Pant said: “The entire student body has been a part of this process and I’m excited by the result today.
“But this isn’t just a moment, it’s the beginning of something much bigger and as a community, we are helping to shape the future of the school.”
An online public survey conducted by the school received 454 responses of which 63% said that the school should not change its name.
However the opinion of students and staff fared differently and 75% of them voted in favour of changing the name. A decision supported unanimously by the Board of Venturers Trust.
