Visiting the school is the best way to find out more about Haberdashers’ Adams and to decide whether we offer an environment where your son or daughter would be happy and would thrive. We strongly recommend attending one of our open events before applying for a place.
For those considering joining the school in Year 7 we hold annual Open Days, details of which can be found below. Year 11 pupils considering joining us for Sixth Form have a choice of Open Afternoons with available dates shown below. Additional boarding specific events are available for pupils considering joining either our Junior or Senior Boarding Houses.
Open Days for Year 7 entry
Our Open Days are held in the Spring Term. We purposefully hold events across a couple of days to allow parents and prospective pupils to tour the school in small groups with the opportunity to see the school during a normal school day, without any special events or lessons being arranged.
Morning and afternoon sessions are held on each of the Open Days starting with a presentation from the Headmaster which is then followed by a tour of the school with the pupils. We recommend that the prospective pupil attends as this is their opportunity to find out more about the school and whether it is an environment they think they would enjoy.
The dates of our Year 7 Open Days for 2019 are the 4th and 5th February. There will be two sessions per day, one starting at 9.30 and finishing at approximately 11am and another starting at 1.30 and finishing by 3pm. The Headmaster will speak at each session after which you will have the opportunity to tour the school with our pupils.
In order to manage numbers for each session we will be asking parents to pre-register for the day and time they would like to attend. Online registration will open at the start of the Spring term 2019.
Sixth Form Open Afternoons
Presentations and tours of the school are held on the following dates for those interested in joining our Sixth Form in September 2019:
The afternoon will start at 2pm when you will hear from the Headmaster followed by a tour of the school with our pupils. In order to manage numbers for each session we will be asking potential pupils to pre-register for the day they would like to attend. Online registration will open at the start of the Spring term 2019.
Further details of the A-Level courses we will be offering in September 2019 will be published shortly.

Boarding Open Events
If you are considering joining us as a boarder we are aware that this is a more involved decision and therefore offer a wide choice of open and taster events.
Pupils considering joining us as a boarder in Year 7 normally first visit the boarding house whilst they are in Year 5 for one of our Junior Boarding Open Evenings. For pupils wishing to find out more we also offer Boarding Taster Weekends which pupils normally attend when they are in Year 5 or 6 but other year groups are welcome if space allows.
Our Junior Boarding Open Events are also ideal for pupils currently in years 7-9 considering joining us as a boarder.
