Open Events 2024

Saturday 28 September – Whole School Open Morning, 9.30am – 12.30pm

We invite you and your daughter to join us at our whole School Open Morning.

Abbot's Hill School Open Morning - Saturday 28 September 2024

We are thrilled to open our doors to prospective families for on-site visits so that you can get a true impression of life at Abbot’s Hill School. We are very proud of everything that goes on each day in our classrooms, outside in the 76 acres of parkland and through our extensive co-curricular programme.

Our pupils are always keen to meet prospective families and chat about their experiences at school; we believe they are our best ambassadors! Please see below for the open events that are coming up for each section of the school, or for our Nursery.

In the meantime, we would encourage prospective families to view our virtual 360 tour which allows immersive access to our site, across our grounds and inside some of our key buildings.

Book your visit


Pre-Prep and Nursery

We offer all prospective families the opportunity to schedule an individual tour with our head of Early Years, Mrs Lucy Daviss, and Nursery Manager, Mrs Sarah Lanchbery, during the school week. If you are interested in a Pre-Prep individual tour please fill out an enquiry form.

If you are interested in hearing more about the entry points available, please get in touch with our Admissions Team. Early applications are recommended.

If you are considering a place for your child to join us in Reception for September 2024, 2025 or 2026 we would be delighted to invite you to an open event or a personal tour, which can be booked here. You will have the opportunity to visit the Pre-Prep (up to Year 2), meet the Head of Early Years, Mrs Lucy Daviss, and Head of the Prep School Miss Katherine Bluck and ask any questions you may have about our school.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.

Prep School 

We are delighted to welcome parents to our Prep School for an open afternoon or informal small group visit.

As part of the open afternoon experience, we invite parents to attend a pupil-led tour to get a true insight into Prep School life at Abbot’s Hill while your children take part in various themed activities. For parents, the tour will be followed by a talk and Q&A with the Head of the Prep School, Miss Katherine Bluck, and members of the Prep School leadership team.

In addition to open mornings, regular small group visits run throughout the term, usually on a Friday afternoon. These conclude with refreshments with the Head and a chance to pose questions in a more relaxed setting. If you would like to book onto one of these, please contact the Admissions Team.

For parents looking for occasional places, please contact the Admissions Team, in the first instance to establish availability.

Senior School Open Day

We are always delighted to welcome families to the school and especially proud of our open days.

There are three types of open events available:

Working In Action Open Afternoon – These events take place throughout the year and whilst the school is in session. Parents will hear from the Head, members of the leadership team and current pupils, after which they enjoy a pupil-guided tour around the Senior School. Pupils can join in with various themed activities during the tour. Working open afternoons give visitors an accurate experience of daily school life at Abbot’s Hill.

Saturday open day – Each September, visitors will hear from the Head, deputies and current pupils, followed by the opportunity to explore all subjects, visit many classrooms and enjoy our 76-acre campus in the company of our delightful pupils. Staff, parents and pupils are also available throughout the campus for questions, and our infamous catering team provide a wonderful breakfast for you to enjoy.

Bespoke Tours – Parents are welcome to visit us at any time and can arrange a bespoke tour by contacting the Admissions Team.

Please note we invite parents to attend all types of open events if they wish, in order to get a full picture of life at Abbot’s Hill School.

For parents looking for occasional places, please contact the Admissions Team, in the first instance to establish availability.
