Visits, Open Days and Mornings


We welcome visits from prospective parents at any time. If you wish to visit us but cannot come to an Open Morning or Evening, please contact Mrs Alice Hailes on 0116 270 5338 or at and arrange a time to suit you. Most visits involve a tour and a meeting with the Headmaster or Head of the Junior Department, depending where your focus lies. Bring your daughter with you if you wish, but don't feel you have to. If you need to visit us more than once, that's fine. There is no right or wrong way, as all parents have different needs.

For Years 6-10 in the Senior School, the Entrance Examination is in January every year, so the Autumn term is a good time to visit if you think your move to us is imminent, but if you are planning ahead, then any time is fine. Alternative entrance examination testing days are available throughout the Spring and Summer terms.

For Years 1-5 in the Junior Department, an assessment can be arranged at a mutually convenient time during a school day. Your daughter will complete some maths and English work and also spend time in the appropriate year group, where she can learn alongside the girls and meet the teacher. A summary of your daughter's assessment will be promptly provided by The Head of the Junior Department.

Taster Days

Many girls come for a 'Taster Day' where they have their chance to try out lessons, make friends, have lunch and see the facilities. Please call to arrange a date to suit you.
