Transition to Year 7 September 2023

Welcome to Bishop Douglass!

Making the transition from primary to secondary school can be daunting, but we know that the quicker students adjust to their new surroundings, the sooner they will be able to achieve their potential.

To welcome our new Year 7s, and to ensure that their transition from primary to secondary is a successful one, our unique transition programme starts the moment every young person is offered a place at Bishop Douglass, aiming to provide assurance to all students and help them to feel supported throughout the transition process.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school over the summer term, and if you have any questions or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to book a tour or phone call with myself or a member of the senior leadership team. If you have not been offered a place at Bishop Douglass but are interested in finding out more, please contact the school using the details below.
