They are confident that their educational needs are met, and personal potential fully explored. Pupils are confident to be themselves. They are secure in their praise and celebration of the achievements of others.”

Settling In

We know that the move from primary to secondary school can be a stressful one. We have an experienced pastoral team in Year 7, and they will strive to ensure every student settles as quickly as possible. We have robust arrangements for Transition, we will visit your daughter in her primary school prior to her starting in Year 7. She will also have an opportunity to come to Bellerive on Transition Day. She will meet her new classmates and spend time with her new Form Teacher.

We invite every family to meet their daughter’s form tutor in the first half-term of Year 7 to ensure communication is genuinely a two-way process.

Testimonials

Julie Wilson has two daughters at Bellerive
“We are practising Catholics so it is essential that the values we teach at home are reaffirmed throughout their educational life. I have no hesitation in recommending Bellerive to parents and future pupils; they can rest assured that their girls can take full advantage of a caring environment so they can focus on their education and shine.”

 

Megan O'Hare graduated from Bellerive in 2017
“Since leaving Bellerive I have completed my law degree this summer at the University of Liverpool with first class honours, secured a vacation scheme in an international law firm and I have just started a new job. I will always attribute where I am now to the foundations that Bellerive helped me achieve. Bellerive helped me to harness my academic talent which set me up for a good start at university.”

 

Sharon Miller has two daughters at Bellerive
“Both of my daughters are doing really well and are very happy, they seem to be going from strength to strength academically with great support from their teachers. The way their achievements have been acknowledged is unbelievable and I can’t imagine a more caring and appreciative environment for them. It just feels very unique and has definitely lived up to its reputation. I wouldn’t consider sending them anywhere else.”

 

Carol Blower has a daughter at Bellerive
“I would say the school’s discipline policy stands out as a particular strength for me. I also liked the fact that my daughter had a one-to-one discussion with the Head of Year before she started. I feel this has stood her in good stead and due to this she has made a really good start to her senior school life. I certainly would recommend this school to other parents.”

 

Susan Crilly has a daughter at Bellerive

“We chose Bellerive for our daughter after attending the Open Evening and being very impressed. We were shown around the school by some very friendly and polite girls and all of the staff we spoke to were friendly, professional and told us how happy they were to be working there. My daughter is very happy at Bellerive, has settled down well, made some lovely new friends and has good relationships with her teachers. “

 

Mrs Simon has sent four daughter to Bellerive
“I have four daughters so I didn’t have to think twice about sending my youngest to Bellerive, her sisters all attended the school and have done very well. My eldest went to Sixth Form there and sprinted straight into a university course.”
