Visit Us


If you would like to visit The Leys please book one of our popular Open Mornings, or you can arrange a Group Visit.

Open Mornings

Open Mornings take place on a Saturday morning, during a normal teaching day at The Leys. This means you will see the school fully in operation. There are often up to fifty families present and it provides a good first introduction to the life of the School. Open Morning places are limited, so please book in advance.

Some Open Events are intended for a specific year group or category of place. For example, there is one specific to Year 7 (11+) and Year 9 (13+) entry, one for families with children at St Faith's, and special mornings for Day, Home Boarding or Boarding categories.

For those interested in entering the Sixth Form, there is a Sixth Form Open Evening in the September or October before the year of entry.

Book Your Visit


Small group Visits

Once you have attended one of our Open Mornings and decided that you would like to short-list The Leys, we would be happy to invite you to a Small Group Visit, held on selected afternoons throughout each term. You may choose to attend either with or without your child, and spaces are limited to a maximum of five families per visit to ensure the talk and tour can be tailored to your requirements. You will have the opportunity to meet informally with the Headmaster or the Deputy Head, along with the relevant Housemasters/Housemistresses and the Registrar, as well as touring the Houses and the Campus again. You will also have the chance to ask any further questions at the end of the tour.

If you wish to book a visit please contact the Registrar on +44 (0)1223 508904 or email:
