Every year in the Autumn term the School opens its doors to Year 6 boys and their parents.

We do our best to show them our buildings, our grounds, our facilities and most importantly, our teaching and learning, so that they can have the clearest possible impression of the School, its life and its work. There are normally two morning sessions, in which lessons proceed as normal and classroom doors are open to visitors who, guided by members of our Sixth Form, are taken around the site in an unhurried tour lasting about 90 minutes. There is also usually one evening session, which will include a presentation from the Head Teacher and the opportunity to see teachers and a small number of pupils demonstrate aspects of the work they do as part of their studies.

There is always ample opportunity to talk to senior members of staff about all aspects of our work, to ask questions relating to the broad education we offer and how admission might be gained to the School.

We think we have a lot to offer your son and, year-by-year, the School gets better and better. Come and see! Whether you choose us or not, we think you'll have a fascinating visit.
