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. 

Spring Open Afternoon - Sunday 24 March 2019 -
2.00pm to 5.00pm

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 in the Chapel during the afternoon. Light refreshments are available.

Taster Days

The College will be running Taster Days for children who are currently in Year 5 (born 1 September 2008 to 31 August 2009) and these will take place in May and June 2019. Due to the popularity of these days, places are limited to one taster day per child and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Taster days run from 9.30am to 3.00pm and typically involve four lessons, a question and answer session with some of our current pupils, a tour of the College and the chance to talk to the Headmaster, Mr Hester. Snacks and lunch are provided.
