Visit Us

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 Day before they sit the exam.

Usually we hold Open Days during the summer and autumn terms.  Events for 2021 entry were impacted by Government guidelines and social distancing requirements, with 11+ and 16+ open events taking place via Zoom webinars.

Events for 11+ entry 2022

Pupils in Year 6 and their parents are encouraged to to visit us during the autumn term 2021 ahead of our January entrance tests.  We offer weekly tours on Tuesday mornings starting on Tuesday 21 September until Tuesday 19 October.  Tours will be conducted by pupils and there will be the chance to hear from a member of our Senior Leadership Team and to informally meet staff over refreshments. Please be aware that our September and October tours have proved extremely popular and are now fully booked.  We are currently looking at the possibility of additional dates.  if you would like to be informed of additional dates or be placed onto a waiting list, please contact:

The next opportunity to visit us will be on our 11+ Open Morning on Saturday 13 November.  You will need to book in advance for the Open Day and the booking form  will be posted here when available.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bancroft’s.
