Visiting the School
Visitors are warmly welcomed to Dean Close School. For a more individualised visit please contact the School to arrange a personal tour, alternatively you are welcome to register for one of our three Open days.
A personal visit
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. The tour can involve seeing all three schools during one visit, if appropriate.
There are three whole school Open Mornings a year in October, March and May. They are an opportunity for prospective parents to spend some time with pupils, who act as tour guides. They are staggered throughout the morning to allow parents to visit all three schools. The Pre-Preparatory Open Morning commences at 9.00am and finish at 11.00am and the Preparatory School Open Morning starts at 8.40am with the Headmaster’s address at 9.00am and finishes at 10.30am. The Senior School Open Morning commences at 10.00am. Following their tour, parents and children are invited to join staff for refreshments.
The Pre-preparatory School also organises regular ‘Stay and Play’ events for toddlers and more informal Open Mornings during the year.
