Open Events
in Admissions

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 plus some boarding specific events throughout the year if you are interested in our boarding option.  We also hold annual Open Afternoons for Year 11 pupils considering joining us for Sixth Form, again with the option of boarding tours for those interested in joining our boarding community. Full details of all these events can be found below. 

Open Days for Year 7 entry

Our Open Days for 2020 will be held on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th February. We will be very pleased to welcome families considering their son joining us in Year 7 in the coming years. There will be sessions at 9.30am and 1.30pm, at both times families will hear from the Headmaster before touring the school with our pupils.

Pre-registration will be required for our Open Days and a link to register will be available here nearer the time.

Sixth Form Open Afternoons

Pre-registration will be required for our Sixth Form Open Afternoons and a link to register will be available here nearer the time.

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.

Junior Boarding

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.

Boarding Open Evening

Our next Boarding Open Evening will be on Thursday 11th July 2019. This is an ideal opportunity to see the boarding house when the boys are home and to meet some of the staff. The visit will last around an hour with tours conducted by our boarders. Please feel free to ring our Development and Boarding Manager Caroline Cheal if you would like to attend on +44 1952 953823 or complete the online booking form below.

Junior Boarding Taster Weekend

Our Junior Boarding Taster Weekends are ideal for pupils who are considering joining us as a boarder in Years 7, 8 or 9. 

Our next Taster Weekend will be in the Autumn term 2019 with another one in the Spring term 2020. The dates will be published here once confirmed.

On arrival the boys spend the Saturday afternoon and evening in our boarding house taking part in a number of activities with our current boarders before having an overnight sleep in one of the dormitories. On Sunday morning they have a short session of prep, again with our current boarders, and take part in another of the typical weekend activities that we organise for our boarders. 

The Taster Weekend ends with lunch on the Sunday and family members are invited to join us with an opportunity to talk to some of our boarding staff and to meet parents of current boarders, who will also help to answer any questions whilst sharing their own experiences as a boarding parents.
