Transition to Bishop Gore School
“This may not be the transition we were hoping and planning for but please be assured that we will do all we can to make sure your child settles quickly and happily in Bishop Gore School. We are all very much looking forward to meeting you very soon!”
Bishop Gore School’s Pupil Support Team
The transition from primary to secondary school can cause anxiety and worry at the best of times, we understand that with the current restrictions these may well be enhanced. At Bishop Gore School we aim to ensure that transition is smooth and stress-free for all our pupils, this will be especially true this year.
In order to support your child as best we can we have put together some online resources and guides which we hope will help alleviate some of these concerns and worries as well as answer any questions you may have.

Tips for a successful transition from our Pupil Governing Body.
Bishop Gore School has a very strong focus on pupil voice. There are extensive opportunities for pupils across the school to have their voice heard through representation on the Pupil Governing Body and House Councils. This short film was made by our Chair and Vice Chair of our Pupil Governing Body.
