Visit the school

There are a number of opportunities to visit the school during the course of the year. We encourage prospective pupils and their parents to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school before registering to take the Entrance Examinations in November. 

Open Evening - Wednesday 6 June 2018 - 6.30pm to 8.30pm

This is an informal opportunity to look around the school and to meet members of staff and pupils. There will be activities in each department for children to participate in, and the Headmaster will also address visitors during the evening. Light refreshments are available.

Taster Days 

Sixth Form Taster Days are planned for December 2017 and January 2018. These Taster Days will give external applicants in Year 11 (children born between 1 September 2001 to 31 August 2002) a taste of Sixth Form life at Princethorpe and are aimed at those pupils who are interested in admission to the College in September 2018. Information about dates and how to book will be confirmed shortly.

Taster Days for Year 5 children looking for entry in 2019 will start in May 2018.  For more information please contact the Registrar.
