Visitors are warmly welcomed at Worth, and parents are encouraged to visit several times, both with and without their children, to tour the School and to meet the pupils, the staff and the other parents. There are several ways that parents and their children are able to get to know the School.
The remaning Open Days for 2017-18 will be 7th October (now fully booked), 4th November, 3rd February and 17th March (all Saturdays).
Open Days offer informal opportunities to listen to introductions to life at Worth by the Head Master, pupils and senior staff, to tour the campus with pupil guides, and to meet a wide range of staff over lunch. To book an Open Day please click here.
While an Open Day gives a broad introduction to the School and community, a private visit during the school working day enables parents to have individual meetings with the Head Master, Housemasters or Housemistresses, or other senior members of staff, and the Registrar. Heads of Department (Sport/Music/IB, etc) are also available to meet parents when requested. Please contact Admissions.
Introduction Days are held in the Autumn Term prior to the year of entry for boys and girls joining at 11+ (Year 7) and 13+ (Year 9) and offer them a chance to familiarise themselves further with the School by attending some classes, activities and sports, and to meet other candidates who will be joining.
Parents will also be invited to have further tours of the School and to meet staff, and current and prospective parents. Parents of boys and girls joining at 13+ in Year 9 will also be invited to have tours of the Houses and to meet Housemasters or Housemistresses before stating any House preference.
Boys and girls offered a place to join at 11+ (Year 7) or 13+ (Year 9) for the Junior School can also take advantage of a Shadow Day – typically in the Spring or Summer Terms prior to entry – whereby they can experience a typical day at Worth, shadowing a 'buddy' pupil.
As soon as the arrival of a guest is announced, the community should hurry to offer a welcome...
