Visiting the School during COVID 19
Following Government Guidelines Dean Close School is currently closed until further notice. We appreciate that a school visit is a valuable part of the school application process. However, during the COVID 19 pandemic a visit to the school is not possible. In the meantime, families can familiarise themselves with the School via our YouTube Channel where they will find a rich and diverse range of footage across all areas of the Dean Close Foundation.
As soon as the school is able to re-open the Admissions team will reinstate new Open Morning dates and organise private tours for prospective families.
A personal visit
When the school re-opens all prospective parents are invited for a personal tour of the School. During a personal tour you will have the opportunity to meet the Head Teacher and other key members of staff. The visit will provide ample opportunity for conversations about every aspect of your child’s learning and character, talents and interests, which will allow us to demonstrate how we would support and develop them at Dean Close. Our guided tour of the School will also give you a comprehensive understanding of all that Dean Close has to offer your child during their educational journey.
All Open Mornings are currently postponed until further notice. Usually, there are three whole school Open Mornings each academic year; October, February and May. These events are an opportunity for prospective parents to view the School’s facilities as well as spending some time with pupils, who act as tour guides.
Pre-Preparatory Open Morning commences at 9.00am and finishes at 11.00am. The Pre-Prep School also organises regular ‘Stay and Play’ events for toddlers and more informal Open Mornings throughout the year.
Preparatory School Open Morning commences at 8.40am, with the Headmaster’s Welcome at 9.00am and finishes at 10.30am.
Senior School Open Morning registration commences at 10.00am with the Headmaster’s Welcome at 10.20am. Following the tour, parents and children are invited to join staff for refreshments.
