Organise a Visit

Throughout the year, we invite families to come and experience our school, to help you decide if King Edward VI School is right for your child. Below you will find details of our Taster Morning and Open Day events. We also provide individual tours of our school with a senior member of staff. These are bookable throughout the year, please contact the admissions team to book.

Taster Mornings 

Our Taster Mornings are a fantastic way for parents and children to experience our school, meet the Head, explore the grounds and join us for lunch. The format for the taster mornings will be as follows:

(10.00am) Arrive for refreshments and registration before pupils will experience three short taster lessons* and parents will attend a welcome address from the Head, Mr Parker (10.30am). Parents will then be taken on a tour of the School (11.15am), ending the visit with families joining us for lunch (12.00pm). The Taster Morning events will be finished by 12.45pm.

*Please note that the actual taster lessons offered will vary in subject from event to event. Subjects cannot be guaranteed in advance.
