Transition Communication

As we head towards September, the school will be sending you lots of information about key dates and next steps. This page will collate all of the communication that is sent, so that it is all in one place.

One of the things we find year on year is that some email service providers like to mark emails from The Bulmershe School as spam/junk, therefore if you are not receiving emails from us, please do check your junk folder in case they have found their way in there. Some might be from "Admin", others from "Transition".

If you are still not receiving information, please let our Transition Team know by emailing and we can check the email addresses we have for you.

Another way to stay up to date with general information is to follow our official Facebook and X (Twitter) accounts.

There are also private Facebook groups, set up and run by parents you can ask to join. Please note: these Facebook groups are not run by The Bulmershe school and we have no input into the content that can be found there, however you might find them a useful place to meet and chat to other families in the community.

1. A dedicated group for those families joining the school in September:
"The Bulmershe School Year 7 September 2024"

2. The whole school parent group
"The Bulmershe School parents"
