Starting Year 7 (General Information for Parents)

Welcome from the Year 7 Pastoral Team

Welcome to Gillingham School.  Before your child starts with us, we work closely with their primary school and year 6 teacher to decide on the most appropriate Tutor and Teaching group that they will join from the September. In addition to this, we will also try to meet with students before they start.

Admission to Gillingham School information can be found on the Dorset For You website here.
