To all prospective families:

We have had to cancel all visits to the school campus for the foreseeable future.

These presentations will be led by the Headmaster, Jesse Elzinga, and the Director of Admissions, Arabella Stuart.

Please sign up to one of the presentations below:

Visit us

When Sevenoaks School is open, there are three ways to visit, and you can also meet us on our international visits and at the Independent Schools Show:

1) Group Visits

We hold regular Group Visits which are usually held on a Saturday. This gives prospective parents and students the opportunity to have a tour of the campus/boarding houses and to speak with the admissions team. Visitors are able to see the campus on a normal school day. 

2) Open Mornings: click here for FAQ

Our Open Mornings are held twice a year (September and June) and is open to families interested in entry at 11+, 13+ and 16+. The September Open Morning is an opportunity for you to see the campus on a normal school day, and to look in on a few lessons if you would like to. Teaching staff will of course not be available for one-to-one discussions on these mornings.

The June Open Morning is our larger event. Visitors will hear talks from the Head and the Director of Admissions, as well as a presentation from current pupils. Student-led tours of the campus will include the opportunity to talk to senior members of staff in the Dining Hall, and classrooms will be open with displays, apparatus and exercise books available to look at. Subject teachers and students will also be on hand to answer your questions. You will also be able to visit a boarding house. Attendance can be booked online here.

3) Individual Visits

If you are unable to attend a group visit or open morning, you are welcome to book an appointment for an individual visit. This will include a tour of the campus, a meeting with the Director of Admissions or Head of Sixth Form Admissions and, if relevant, a visit to a Boarding House. These take place on week day mornings during term time. Please contact to make an appointment for 11+ or 13+ entry or to make an appointment for 16+ entry. Please note that availability is limited so please book as far in advance as possible.

4) International visits: click here for dates and locations

Our admissions team hold events around the world throughout the year, meeting prospective parents and students at drinks receptions, individual interviews and presentations. You are warmly invited to attend. Some times are also available for private meetings. You can also find us at the British Boarding Schools Show at some international locations.
