Letter to Parents from Headteacher re:  Admissions for September 2021 

Please find a below a video with answers to your posted questions.

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. All Year 6 students will have an induction day in July.  In addition to this, where there is a need, students will engage in our transition programme.  This programme aims to support students who are more anxious and might find the transition to secondary school more challenging.

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

Please find details of our Induction Day which has now changed to  21st July 2021 Induction Day 2021 letter
