For Junior School Entry

We offer Junior School Open Mornings throughout the year, and these offer a lovely opportunity to see the Junior School in action on a normal working day; booking is required and young siblings are very welcome. The Junior School Open Mornings begin with a talk by the Master and the Head of Junior School at 9.30 am followed by a tour of the school with one of our Year 6 boys and coffee with the Head of Junior School and the Registrar’s team.

For Senior School Entry

We hold three Senior School Open Events during the year and these are an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the Senior School. The Open Evening in October is for Year 7 and Year 9 only. The events start with a talk from the Master followed by a Question and Answer Session with a pupil panel, a tour with a current pupil of your child’s age at entry and finish with tea and cakes with the Master, Heads of Department and the Registrar’s team. These events are very popular so do please book well in advance.
