Transfer Request Letter
Situations are not the same as always. You may take up a job in some place and then for some reasons you may have to shift to another city or even another country. Thus transfers are a part and parcel of professional life. In case of government jobs and armed forces transfers are very frequent. Here transfers are by default an important part of your job. In some cases you have to request for a transfer due to some specific reasons. Here you can use a transfer request letter to get your request approved.
Here there are two example of transfer request letter. The first transfer request letter is addressed to a school principal, requesting for transfer of the student in the other branch of the school. The second one is a job transfer request letter. You can request your boss for a transfer with a valid reason.

Head - Holy School,
Dear Father Peter,
I am Michelle Mark. My daughter, Natasha Mark, studies in the 5th grade in your school. Her roll count is 2516.
My purpose of addressing this letter to you is to request you to transfer my daughter to the other branch of your school situated in London. My husband has got a job transfer and we are shifting to London forever.
As your school follows the same curriculum all over, it won't affect my daughter's studies, even if she joins between the semesters.
Please consider my request and approve of the same as soon possible because we have to move to London by 12th February.
Thanking you in anticipation.

In this way you can request for a job transfer to your boss. Make sure you request well before time because if they start hiring for the vacancy, where you desire to get transferred then you will be too late.
Even while requesting for school transfer, see to it that you apply for a transfer as soon as you come to know that you have to move to a new place. This will help you to avoid any loss in your child's studies.
I hope this article will be useful for you and next time when you have to draft a transfer request letter you do not need to panic.
