Admissions to Sir Thomas Rich's School

Open Day

Tuesday 26th September 2017 – 8.40am until 1.05pm and from 2.15pm to 3.30pm.

During the Open Days, you are welcome to come and visit the school to see what Sir Thomas Rich's has to offer your child. There will be the opportunity to meet some of our academic staff and students and see something of our daily school life, including some interactive lessons. There is no need to book in advance and you are welcome in the morning or afternoon to have a guided tour of the school with one of our students. If you wish to experience some of the traditions of Sir Thomas Rich's, you can attend morning assembly starting at 8:40am, followed by a guided tour. We suggest you allow approximately one hour for your visit.

Open Evening

Tuesday 26th September 2017 – 6.30pm until 9.00pm (doors open at 6.00pm for parents to take a seat in the hall, the rest of the school can be seen from 6.30pm).

As an alternative to our Open Day, you may wish to visit our Open Evening where there will be two presentations given by the Headmaster (6.30 pm and 7.30 pm). This will give you some insight into the school. There will be an opportunity to have a guided tour of the school or look around by yourselves. You will be able to speak individually to the Headmaster, to our teachers and to our students. The Parents' Association will provide refreshments. Parking is provided on the school site.
