New Parent's Evening at Bedminster Down School

We would like to invite you to our new year 7 Parents’ Evening which will take place on Monday 2nd July 2018, from 6:30-8pm. This is a very valuable evening, with a chance for you to meet key staff, find out important information and ask any questions.


Transition Week 2018

We are inviting all of our Year 6 pupils to a week long experience at Bedminster Down from the 25th to the 29th June. They will spend some of their time taught by primary teachers and some of their time taught by Bedminster Down subject teachers. It is hoped that during the week children will become confident with their surroundings, be able to begin forming new friendships and we will get to know them so that in September it will be a smoother start and children will be able to continue in their learning far quicker. Information on transition week attached to this email. Please ensure you provide permission for your child to attend through the permissions form that will be emailed to you.

Getting Uniform


The school uniform you need to buy depends on the house your child is assigned to. Siblings of current students will be placed in the same house but we recommend you wait to find out your child's house before buying uniform.

You can visit our suppliers website (01275 874351). For Cheddar Grove and St Peters parents, please be aware your current uniform sizing is the same as Bedminster Down.

We will be hosting School uniform evenings at Bedminster down on 11th & 18th July from 4pm until 7pm in the school hall, where new students will be able to try on and purchase uniform.
