Picking the right school for your child is a difficult decision; we recommend that you visit Bancroft’s with your child to get a real feeling for what life is like here. Our Open Mornings and Evenings give you the chance to meet staff and pupils as well as to see our fantastic facilities. If you are registering your child to sit an entrance examination, we strongly recommend that you and your child visit Bancroft’s on an Open Morning/Evening before they sit the exam.
We hold Open Days during the summer and autumn terms; please see the dates below. Please note that the dates for the summer term 2020 are dependent on Government advice concerning Covid-19. Although we hope that they will go ahead, it might be necessary to postpone them, in which case changes and updates will be posted on this site. We encourage you to check back later.
The Head will speak only once at each event, so please arrive promptly at the times given above. Information packs are available at each event. When planning your journey, please bear in mind that parking on the School site is limited and you may need to allow extra time to find suitable parking. It is not necessary to book for our Open Events.
