Visits & Open Mornings


Visiting the School

Visitors are warmly welcomed to Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School either to one of the three Open Mornings during the year or for a personal tour.

Open Mornings

Regular Open Mornings are held throughout the year; they are an opportunity for prospective families visiting the school to spend time with Prep School pupils, who act as tour guides.  Open Mornings begin at 9.30am and finish at 11.30am and the tours are conducted by members of the Senior Prep (Years 7 and 8).  Guests are taken on a tour of the Pre-Preparatory School and the Prep School in time for the Senior School tour, if desired.  Following their tour, parents and children are invited to join staff in the Prep School Library for refreshments before their tour of the Senior School.  

The next Open Mornings for the Pre-prep and Prep School are

         Saturday 11 October 2014
         Saturday 7 March 2015 (TBC)
         Saturday 16 May 2015

In addition to our Open Mornings, we strongly encourage families to visit 'The Squirrels' during our working week for an individual tour with the Headmistress in order to see the School in action and see our pupils in the exciting learning environment.

Personal Tours

All prospective parents are invited for a personal tour of the School.  A tour of the School will enable you to see the School in action and to understand why we believe that 'The Squirrels' provides a vibrant and stimulating start to a child's learning journey.  A personal tour with the Headmistress, Dr Carolyn Shelley, will also give you time to discuss all aspects of School life and ways in which the School can meet your child's individual needs.

If you would like further information about visiting 'The Squirrels', please contact the School Office on t 01242 258079
