Finding the right school for your child is a difficult decision but one of great importance.  Open Events can have an important part to play in this decision making. Our Open Mornings and Evenings give you the chance to meet staff and pupils, get a feel for our school and its ethos, as well as to see our fantastic facilities. If you are registering your child to sit an entrance test for entry September 2024, we strongly recommend that you and your child visit Bancroft’s before they sit the test. This will allow you to familiarise yourselves with what we offer.

Prospective parents and pupils are invited to visit Bancroft’s on the following occasions during 2023. It is necessary to book in advance for these events and the relevant booking forms will be made available on this page.

We will be holding a series of small group tour mornings for entry September 2024 during the autumn term.
