New Starters September 2017: Houses & Other Information

Dear Parents/ Carers

If your child is joining us in September, you should have by now received a transition pack with Data Collection forms and permission slips. Please ensure these are completed and returned to your primary school as soon as possible. 

For those new students wishing to attend the August activities week; We must remind you that there are limited places available and places are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. A prompt response is recommended.

The transition pack also contains a school uniform order slip. There is no need to order the full uniform at the moment, as to do this, you will need to know which house your child will be in. We will be allocating houses in the coming weeks and informing your child of their house during the June transition week. If your child is not attending the transition week, we will send this information to you via email (as collected from the data sheet in the transition pack) during the transition week period.

There will also be a parents evening for new parents at Bedminster Down on 3rd July from 6.30-8.00pm. This evening will provide an opportunity to meet the staff, buy uniform and ask any questions you have about September.

If you have any queries on the above information or any other questions, please contact our main office via email: or telephone: 0117 353 2800


Many thanks for your continued cooperation.
