Senior School taster days

Our taster days let Year Five children enjoy a day at Senior School to help make the change a less daunting experience.

What happens on a taster day

Taster days run from 9.10am to 3pm and feature a series of fun and educational activities such as Science, Drama, Maths, PE and Art.


After registering in the dining hall, children are assigned to one of three groups and take part in four lessons that will inspire and provide them with a taste of senior school life.


Children will be able to meet up and socialise with members of the other groups during morning break and lunchtime.

We provide free refreshments and lunch, where there is a wide choice of options to suit most tastes and dietary requirements.

Clothing and equipment

Children should wear casual clothes with trainers so that they are comfortable and able to take part in a PE session.

We provide all the equipment the children need for their lessons.


Children should be collected at 3.10pm from the dining hall, where members of teaching staff will be available to answer any questions.

Book a place

The dates for the taster days for 2018/2019 are to be confirmed.
