Open events


We run open events throughout the year at Seniors and Sixth Form. During September, we hold larger events that include subject fairs and showcases. You will be escorted around the school by Abbey students, and be welcomed by the Head and Head Girls for their welcome in the Richards Hall.

Senior members of staff along with the admissions team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, to ensure you understand as much about the school as possible.

For the rest of the academic year, we run open events during a normal school day – providing an authentic experience of life at The Abbey. This involves a tour of the school with students before meeting with members of the academic and admissions who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Parents tell us that The Abbey has a unique atmosphere and energy which is best experienced once inside its gates. A warm welcome awaits through a range of formal and informal opportunities to visit us and discover what makes our School so special.


We also run open events throughout the year for Little Knellies Nursery and the Junior School. Upon registering for Junior School open events (you can do this by going to the events page on the website), you will be allocated your own timeslot. Personalised tours around the campus by members of the Junior School Leadership Team include an opportunity to observe and participate in lessons, before meeting with the Head for a well-earned refreshment.

You will also have a chance to chat with the admissions team who will gladly assist you. There is also a FAQ section within the admissions section of the website to answer wider questions.
