Organise a Visit

We are delighted to announce our Taster Morning and Open Evening events.

Open Evening 

We are holding our annual Open Evening on Friday 1 October 2021.  It will not be necessary to let us know in advance if you wish to attend this evening.

A Virtual Information Evening with the Heads

On June 29 2021, we held a virtual information evening, providing information and insight into King Edward VI School and Stroud, our preparatory school, what makes them so special, an outline on school life and the 3-18 educational experience offered. Chaired by King Edward’s Registrar, Mrs Sheppard, the event was streamed live from our state-of-the-art Dobson Theatre and we were joined by Mr Parker, Head of King Edward’s and Mrs Smith, Headmistress of Stroud. We invite you to watch a recording of the session, which can be found below.
