Open Mornings and Arranging a Visit

Open mornings at Swanbourne House provide a valuable opportunity to come and see our school in action. We are very proud of our school and hope that, as you walk round, view our facilities and meet the staff and pupils, you will get a feel for the purposeful, happy environment in which our children work and play.

Future Open Morning Dates

Our Stay and Play Sessions for the Autumn term are as follows:

Stay and Play - Thursday 28 November 2019

If you would like to arrange an individual visit, please contact our Registrar, Gill Pratten, on 01296 720264 or email

What happens at an Open Morning?

Visitors are invited to arrive for 9:45am (refreshments will be available) followed by a presentation by our Head, Mrs Thorpe, and a tour of the School (conducted by our children). You are then invited to return for an informal chat with staff and current parents. Some parents prefer to come alone; others are accompanied by children or grandparents – all are welcome!

Nursery Stay and Play Sessions

We hold Stay and Play sessions throughout the year for parents who are thinking about enrolling their child in the Nursery. These sessions give you and your child the chance to familiarise yourselves with the Nursery and to meet your child’s future friends and teachers. Your child will join in with other children in the Nursery, be that playing outside in the courtyard, watching the rabbits, drawing or dressing up, the choice is theirs. Friends and grandparents are most welcome to come along too. The Registrar, Mrs Pratten, will be available to chat to should you have any further questions and will be more than happy to give you a tour of the Prep school afterwards if you would like.
