Bow School



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, we have our unique transition programme that starts the moment your child is offered a place at Bow School, to ensure all pupils feel supported in their transition process and that it goes as smoothly as possible.


Here are some of the key features of our transition programme...


  • Our transition programme kick starts with Friendship Afternoon, Thursday 7th March at 4.30pm, allowing every child who has been offered a place and those seeking to find out more to join us for taster activities, meet new peers and teachers and find out more about life at Bow. We warmly welcome those who have been offered a place at another secondary school, but are still seeking the perfect fit.
