Open Days

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 or Evening before they sit the exam.

Usually we hold Open Days during the summer and autumn terms; sadly our Open Days for entry September 2021 have been impacted by current recommendations for social distancing due to Covid-19.  Please note that we have had to cancel our planned 7+ Open Morning on 2 May and our 11+ Open Morning on Saturday 6 June  2020. We are currently hoping to run a full programme of events in the autumn term and also to offer additional opportunities for prospective pupils and parents to visit us; however, this remains dependent upon Government guidelines and social distancing needs.  We are also planning to hold virtual open events for both 11+ and 7+ entry September 2021 in the summer term 2020.  Details of these events are to be finalised but they will be posted here when available.  Please check back later for updated details, or complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page..

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.

Tours will be followed by time to talk informally with staff over refreshments.  Updated details together with a booking form for 11+ events will be posted on this page when available.
