Open Event Dates:

If you are trying to choose the right school for your child, Cokethorpe's Open Events are the perfect opportunity for an informal visit to see a little deeper into the School's life.

Current pupils are on hand to guide visitors around the Junior and Senior Schools. They may pause for you to listen to some busking musicians or impromptu poetry readings, watch a drama sketch or one of the many sports fixtures taking place, or even to try out clay pigeon shooting. All departments are open with teachers ready to discuss academic and pastoral matters, whilst subject-specific displays and activities also contribute to the lively atmosphere. The Registrar, Head of Junior School, Head of Sixth Form, Master of Scholars and Director of Studies are all on hand to answer any specific questions, and visitors also have the opportunity to hear an address from the Headmaster.

Parents, grandparents, guardians, former pupils, friends, and of course children, are invited to attend these inspiring and interesting open events and to see the School in action. Subsequently, individual visits are encouraged when families get to see the day-to-day working of the School.

In addition to Open Days, those looking for admission into the Sixth Form will also want to attend our Sixth Form Open Evening. This will give students the opportunity to focus their future career path, talk to Heads of Department about the A Level subjects on offer, and to discuss the opportunities available at Cokethorpe Sixth Form with our Head of Sixth Form and his team. Those wishing to attend should contact the Admissions Office.
