Open Days and Talk & Tours:

The school is open to visitors for two of mornings (Talk & Tours) through the year, as well as for our main Open Day in the summer.

Talk & Tour mornings are informal, with guided tours of the school during a normal working morning, followed by an opportunity to meet the headteacher, and other senior staff, over coffee.  We ask visitors to contact the school to book a place on a tour.

  • Tuesday, 10th October 2017
  • Wednesday, 7th February 2018

Sixth Form Open Evening (6pm to 8pm):

  • Thursday, 9th November 2017

This is a chance for students who wish to join our Sixth Form, with their families, to tour the school and speak with subject teachers about the courses on offer at Kingdown School.

Open Day 2017 (9am to 11am and 5pm to 6.30pm):

  • Tuesday, 3rd July 2018

The format for Open Day for our visitors is guided tours of the school (during normal lessons in the morning), followed by a formal talk by the headteacher in the Large Hall at 6pm.  During the evening session the departments across the school showcase their facilities and display student work.  Teachers and students are available to speak with visitors.  It is not necessary to book a place for Open Days.
