New Boy Information


Welcome

We look forward to meeting and welcoming you to the College at the New Boy Tea on the 9th November. If you cannot make this event then we will welcome you in the New Year. It gives us great pleasure to welcome you and your son to Bishops. We hope that he will enjoy a happy and successful career here, and that your own association with the school will be lasting.

Bishops is a rather complicated place and we have placed on this page some important information which we would like you to read ahead of your son’s arrival next year.

In addition there is some information we need from you in order to be ready to receive your son. You will be handed a pack of forms at the New Boy Tea (or emailed to you if you are unable to attend). Please return the pack in hard copy to the College Reception by 1st December.

New boarders are required to arrive at their Houses by 17:00 on Monday 9th January, and their parents are invited to an address by the Principal in the Memorial Theatre at 17:30.
