Whole school open morning

Saturday 9th September 2017, 9.00am-12.30pm

Our annual open morning offers an excellent opportunity to see the whole of King's College School on a Saturday in September. The next whole school open morning will take place on Saturday 9th September 2017 from 9.00am - 12.30pm. All are most welcome and there is no need to book. You will be offered an opportunity to hear the head master speak, to take a tour of the school guided by one of our pupils, and to meet many members of staff including the admissions team. Subject-based activities will be taking place in a number of areas, and are always very popular with our visitors.

Below are details of other opportunities to visit King’s for specific entry points; we do hope to be able to welcome you to one of them.

The headmaster of the junior school, Dr Gerard Silverlock, is pleased to show the school to small groups of prospective parents on a normal school morning.

Parents of boys who are confirmed as candidates for the entrance assessments will also be invited, together with their son, to a candidates’ open morning/afternoon which is just for their son’s age group.

Booking is essential for these forum visits - to book a place, please contact admissions@kcs.org.uk or call Nicky Sheridan on 020 8255 5349. As places are limited and we are only able to book one visit per family, we recommend that you come during the 12 months leading up to the entry tests. We encourage you to bring your son with you if you wish him to see the school during a working day.
