Small Group Tours

We are delighted to offer your family the opportunity to meet our boys, our teachers and our Head Master, and take a tour of the school as part of a small group this autumn.

Autumn 2021
If you are unable to attend on one of these dates, we invite you and your family to join us for a personal visit (see below).

  • Saturday 11 September 2021
  • Saturday 9 October 2021*
  • Saturday 6 November 2021

*If you are also looking to visit Bedford Girls’ School, we would recommend that you book on to a small group tour on either 11 September or 6 November, so that you can attend their open day on Saturday 9 October. 

During each small group tour, which lasts two hours, you will have the opportunity to meet with the Head Master, James Hodgson, or Prep Headmaster, Ian Silk, as well as senior members of staff, along with subject specialist teachers and our Admissions Team. You will also enjoy a tour of the Upper School or Prep School, giving you the opportunity to meet several of our boys as well. 

Group sizes and tour itineraries may be adjusted to comply with government guidelines and to protect the safety of our school community and visitors.
