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 Morning - Thursday 27 September 2018 - 10.30am to 12.30pm

A chance to visit the school on a normal working day, prior to Entrance Examinations Day in November . Year 8 and 9 pupils will act as tour guides. The Headmaster will also address visitors in the Theatre during the morning. Light refreshments are available.

Taster Days

The College will be hosting taster days for Year 6 children (as of September 2018) in the Michaelmas term.

Due to the popularity of these days, taster day places are limited to one taster day per child and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To register your interest in a Year 6 taster day for your child, please click here. We will contact you when the dates have been published with our online booking and consent form.

For more information or if you have any questions please contact Admissions.
