Upcoming Open Events


School in Action/Taster Mornings (4+ and 7+ Entry)

Parents of girls considering applying for a place at 4+ or 7+ are invited to come to a School in Action morning to give parents the opportunity to look around the Junior School whilst lessons are in progress. The morning includes a tour of the School and a talk from the Head of the Junior School giving information about the admissions process. Junior School girls act as tour guides, showing parents around the classrooms and the School facilities. 

We  also offer Taster mornings to prospective 7+ girls (2018 entry) whilst parents attend a School in Action morning. Girls attend two taster lessons and break time which gives them a flavour of Junior School life.

Timings for School in Action and 7+ Taster Mornings are 9.45am until approximately 11.30am. Numbers for School in Action and Taster Mornings are limited and attendance is by registration only.
