Our Taster Day runs from 9.30am to 1.00pm and features a series of fun and educational activities such as HE, Drama, Music and PE.

The girls take part in lessons, perhaps play some sport, enjoy a drama or music lesson, and meet their future classmates.

Registration: After registering on the day at the reception, girls will be assigned to groups and take part in a series of lessons that will inspire and provide them with a taste of senior school life.

Lunch: Girls will be able to meet up and socialise with members of the other groups during morning break and lunchtime. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Our canteen offers a wide choice of options to suit most tastes and dietary requirements.

Clothing and equipment: Girls should wear casual clothes with trainers and a jacket so that they are comfortable and able to take part in a PE session. We will provide any equipment the students may need for their lessons.
