The initial blazer and tie are being provided free of charge by the school and will (hopefully!!) be available to collect 10 a.m until 3 p.m from reception from Tuesday 26th August onwards (including the P.D days on 1st and 2nd September). The rest of the uniform can purchased from wherever parents prefer to shop for clothing, provided it adheres to the school uniform rules.
The uniform rules are attached. If parents have any queries then please contact the school office after 26/8/14 before buying an item that turns out to be unsuitable!

Trade Union Strike Action
You will be aware that a number of public sector trade unions and a teaching trade union may be taking industrial action on Thursday 10th July 2014. The support staff unions Unison and GMB and the teachers’ union NUT have already confirmed that they will be taking strike action.
An early indication is that a small number of our teaching and several support staff may be taking part in this action, however, it is still my intention to open the school as normal at present.
Bishopsgarth year 11 students enjoy their end of year school prom at Walworth Castle
Delightful dresses, sumptuous suits and lots of laughs. This was the scene as Bishopsgarth’s departing year 11 boarded the bus they thought was taking them to their prom on the Teesside Princess. The looks of wonder and awe when they saw their real destination were well worth the little white lies the staff had been telling to throw them off the scent. As the bus meandered down the winding driveway, the turrets of Walworth Castle leapt forth from behind lush greenery, causing squeals of excitement from pupils and staff alike.
