Personal Visits

Here at Kingswood, we are delighted to welcome families on personal visits, ideally during term time and on a working day, as this is the best time to see the school community operating normally. As well as organising a meeting with the Headmaster or a member of the Senior Management Team, the Admissions team will also arrange a tour with one of our pupils. This will include a visit to one of our boarding houses and a chance to talk about entrance procedures the Admissions team. Visits normally take place between 9.00am and 2.30pm and last around two hours.  

Boarding families will also meet one of the House Parents. We like to invite our boarding families, especially those travelling from a distance, to have lunch or tea at the School during the visit. Boarding families should, therefore, allow at least three hours for their visit, and we would appreciate you booking your appointment at least 10 days in advance. To book a visit, please fill out the online form.


Following a visit to the School, the next stage in the admissions process is to register your child for entry. After registration, pupils will take their entrance exams. 

Taster Days

We organise a taster morning for all pupils registered for Year 7, normally in the January of the calendar year prior to entry. During the morning, prospective pupils join our current Year 7 and 8s for a Chapel service, then take part in four subject lessons throughout the day. They also get to enjoy a delicious lunch in the dining hall and have their breaks in Westwood House, the base for all Year 7 and 8 pupils.

Accepted Year 7 pupils are also invited to a freshers' day in June to revisit the School, meet key members of staff and get to know their year group.
