School Visits/Open Days

FORM 1 OPEN DAY - May 3rd, 2019

Parents and children who have already registered for a place will be invited to attend our Open Day. For 2020 (current 5th class pupils) entrants Open Day takes place Friday May 3rd, 2019. If you have not yet registered but wish to attend the Open Day please contact our office for a Registration Form. The Open Day takes place from 9am to 2pm. During the Open Day parents and children are given guided tours of the school, from classrooms to boarding facilities, and information sessions are given by each Department Head. There will be plenty of interaction with current students, who lead the guided tours along with a member of the teaching staff. You will also get the opportunity to hear musical, speech & drama and choral performances from students, view some of their art projects, engage in experiments in the science labs and sample some of the delicious treats baked by our Home Economics students. You are invited to stay for lunch from 1-2pm, where you can informally chat with our staff and students.

If you are unable to attend Open Day we can arrange a school visit at another time so please do let us know. If your contact details have changed since you first registered your child please advise us immediately, particulary home address or email.

Taster Sleepover - March 29th, 2019

We are also offering  the opportunity for a full boarding school day and night experience with a fully-supervised taster sleepover for current 5th class pupils.

  • Meet and greet with our Head, Boarding and Nursing staff on Friday at 2pm
  • Buddy up with a Form 1 student and join them in the last academic class of the day
  • Try out a school sport or enrichment programme from 4-5pm
  • Tea & evening social activities
  • Sleep overnight
  • Breakfast and Saturday Morning Activities Programme
  • Pick up 12pm

The Sleepover does not replace the Open Day but gives your child a taste of what it is like to be away from home at boarding school for one night. It will be limited to 2 groups of 4 boys and 4 girls with a House Person assigned specifically to each group, who will also be resident at night adjacent to their room.

Please contact us in the Admissions Office if this is something you would be interested in for your son or daughter.

Mid-Stream 
If you have submitted a registration form to the school for a form other than Form 1 and have missed the Open Day, you can contact our Admissions Office at any time and we will arrange an appointment for a tour of the school.  Mid-stream applicants must also be interviewed by the Headmaster or Deputy Head.

International Boarders
We welcome visits from prospective International Students and Agents all year round and are open during most school holidays. If possible it is better to visit the the school in full session as you have the opportunity to meet with other students and staff, observe classes and view some sports activities. To find out more about the application process for an International Student please click here or email us with the student's Name, Date of Birth and class they are applying for.
