Senior School Open Mornings

The Senior School usually holds several Open Mornings every year.  These are ideal opportunities for you and your child to gain an insight into life at Sutton Valence School by talking to staff and pupils, hearing from the Headmaster and touring the site. 


Michaelmas Term 2020

Sadly due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to operate physical open events for the foreseeable future, but we are offering individual visits and virtual Open Days. 


Virtual Open Days

In May and June 2020, as a result of the School site being closed to to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the School held two Virtual Open Day events. Through the power of video conferencing, each prospective family was hosted by a member of staff and a School prefect, who then guided them through various online resources to learn more about the School.

The format worked well and we will be replicating it on Saturday 3rd, Saturday 17th October and Saturday 14th November 2020 at 12.30pm.

At these events, visiting families will meet online with a member of academic staff and one of our Prefects for a discussion about the School and their child. During the meeting, families will be able to view a welcome address from the Headmaster, Mr Grindlay, and watch a tour of the School with our Senior pupils. Each family will will be provided with an individual meeting invitation login and password prior to the event. 

Our Open Events are always very popular and due to the high number of families who have registered to attend this term, our Open Days on 3rd and 17th October are now fully booked.

Our next available Open Morning is on Saturday 14th November at 12.30pm. Please register your interest using the form below.


Individual visits

If you have already attended a virtual open day earlier in the year, or you would prefer to visit in person, we would be pleased to arrange a tour of the School and a personal meeting with Mr Grindlay, Headmaster. (The School tour will be external only and will not include visits to classrooms or other internal areas).

Please contact Mrs Kathy Webster, Admissions Officer, to arrange an individual visit to the School.
