Whole-school open events (11+, 13+, 16+)

St John's holds four whole-school open events in September and May/June each year. During these events, the whole of the School is open and on show, and tours are given by current pupils. The Headmaster and pupils will talk at 5:30 and 6:15pm on Friday and 9:30 and 10:15am on Saturday.

Although it is not necessary to book a place in advance for a whole school open event, if you have not visited the school before you can save time on the day by completing the open event booking form in advance.

Attendants will direct you to the car parks and to the two reception areas, also shown on the plan.
