Open Days

Independent schools are happy to welcome visits from prospective parents and students, either by appointment or by holding specific Open Days during the school year.

Reading a prospectus can only give so much information. An Open Day gives the opportunity to look around the school, absorb the atmosphere and meet the Head, staff and pupils.  It provides an insight into the interaction of staff and pupils and also the relationship between the pupils and their peers.  Current work by pupils will be on show and demonstrations of practical work in drama, music, games, technology and science may be given too.

It is vitally important to visit the schools in person before enrolling your child.  Once a shortlist of schools has been made a visit will confirm suitability and distinguish between them. Visits in September or October will allow plenty of time to enter your child for any entrance examinations which are usually held in January or February for entry the following September.
