Open Events

Years 7-10 – Day and Boarding

For those considering entry into the school in Years 7-10, we hold an annual Open Week.

This is an ideal opportunity for boys in Year 5 and Year 6 who are considering taking the Entry Test to take a really good look at the school and to ask questions.

After a short presentation by the Headmaster, you and your son will be shown around the school in small groups by the pupils. You will see the school during a normal working day and pupils will take you into classrooms to see the boys and teachers in action. By asking pupils to conduct the tours we know you will receive a genuine insight into school life and they are ideally placed to answer any questions parents or boys have.

After the tour there will be a short presentation about the admissions process with an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.

Open Week

Our 2017 Open Week was held in September. As soon as the date of our 2018 Open Week is confirmed it will be published here.

Sixth Form – Day and Boarding

Sixth Form Open Afternoons are held weekly  from October through to early February . Year 11 pupils interested in joining Adams’ for Sixth Form are given a presentation by the Headmaster and shown around the school by current Sixth Form pupils. This is an ideal opportunity to find out more about life in the Sixth Form at Adams’ and to ask any questions you may have. It is also an opportunity to look around the senior boarding houses if you are considering our boarding option.

Full details of our Sixth Form Open Events for students considering applying for a Sixth Form place for September 2018 can be viewed on our website here.

Boarding Open Events

Junior Boarding Taster Weekends

Boys interested in boarding at Adams’ are invited to spend the night in Longford Hall, the Georgian Mansion which is home to around fifty 11-14 year olds who make up half of our 100 boarders.

During the taster weekend the boys meet some of the staff who show them around and organise group activities to help the boys relax and get to know each other. After spending the night in the dormitories the boys enjoy the sort of outing junior boarders normally take part in before their parents return at lunchtime to collect them and find out all about their adventures.

Our next Boarding Taster Weekend will be during the Spring Term abd the dates published here once confirmed.

If you would like to express your interest in your son attending a Taster Weekend please ring the school office on 01952 953810 or email with your son’s name and date of birth.

Junior Boarding Open Evenings

We hold Boarding Open Evenings throughout the year to give prospective boarders and their parents a chance to view our boarding house in action. The boarders themselves will take you on a tour to give you a real insight into life as an Adams’ boarder at Longford Hall.

Junior Boarding Open Evenings take place once a term, the Spring 2018 date will be published here shortly.
