 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.


Welcome to Bishop Gore!

As we are unable to hold the Welcome to Bishop Gore School Parents Evening we’d planned for this term we hope these clips will help give you a feel for our school as well as answering some of your questions.
