Information for Year 7 Students starting September 2019
This is an exciting time of year as anticipation builds about starting at Bullers Wood School.
The following information is applicable to those girls WHO HAVE BEEN OFFERED a place at Bullers Wood School by their local authority. Please do not complete the documentation if this is not the case.
Please complete our online information form by Monday 3rd June 2019. This includes important documents for you to read and agree to so please allow some time to complete this.
If you have any admissions queries, please email Mrs Oliver, PA to the Headteacher.
Please read this information about our attendance procedures and the school day and this statement about mobile devices. Our term dates for 2019-20 are here. All our school policies can be found on this page – please take the time to familiarise yourself with them. Your daughter will receive a Contact Book in September containing lots of key information for reference.
Please read this information about school uniform and equipment. Our school uniform can be purchased from Bromley Schoolwear, and PE kit is available from this online supplier. Further information about ordering PE kit can be found here.
Cashless Catering/School Gateway
Most school communications are sent out by email – please ensure that the school has a correct email address for correspondence. You will need to register for School Gateway in order to receive important messages from school. This also links to our cashless catering system. Further information will be sent about School Gateway in due course.
At Bullers Wood School, Year 7 students study two languages. All students study Spanish, and your daughter will be assigned either German or French for her second language. If you have a strong reason for wanting your daughter to follow a particular language (French or German), for example a heritage language within the family, or a language studied at primary school, please email Mrs Strong in the School Office explaining your reasons by Monday 3rd June 2019. We will attempt to meet requests but cannot guarantee this.
If you wish your daughter to receive instrumental or singing lessons, please print and complete the BYMT form and return it to Mr Parsons, Head of Music, at the school, either by post or by handing it in at the Parent Welcome Evening on 2nd July. Details of fees for lessons are included on the form.
