School Open Days

Below you will find details of local secondary, sixth form and independent school open days over the coming months.  These are listed in alphabetical order.  If you have missed any of the open days or in cases where no public open day has been organised by the school we would suggest contacting the school directly to arrange a visit.

We do our best to ensure dates, timings and details are accurate.  However from time to time details change. To avoid unnecessary disappointment we recommend contacting the school or checking their website to double check the details and confirm attendance before setting off.

You can access all the information you need about the state school applications process on the Herts County Council website. Independent schools will run their own admissions processes and you should visit the school websites for further details.

Senior School Open Evenings (alphabetical order)

Senior School open evenings take place in September/October, with the exception of Sandringham School who hold their main event in July, with informal tours available in autumn.  Booking is not required for the main Open Evenings, but Headteachers' talks will be ticketed on a first-come-first-serve basis on the night, and booking is likely to be required for additional tours.  Visit the school websites for more information.
