Why did we decide to launch the private tours?
The format of the traditional open day is certainly useful, but it is a prepared, showcase event and we think that if you are investing heart, soul and mind – as well as financially – in an independent school then you need to see it operating. A private tour, where you are going into lessons and interacting with pupils and teachers, and seeing the school up and running is probably therefore an ideal open day experience.
What can you expect from the experience?
You will be welcomed by one of our team at the school’s main reception before being introduced to our Headmaster, Mr Berry, who will give you a brief introduction to the grammar school, its values and history, and then take you on a tour of the school which normally takes about 45 minutes. We have quite a large campus and will show you a selection of subjects being taught, as well as many of the indoor and outdoor spaces, such as the dining hall and sports facilities.
What are the benefits of this style of open day?
The tours do work well because they offer the best, transparent, 360-degree view of the school. We will provide a tour tailored to each individual family giving parents and prospective pupils the opportunity to see the school in action and experience the unique atmosphere at KGS. One of our biggest values here is our emphasis on a family ethos and that is very hard to explain on paper or even demonstrate at an open day.
When can families visit?
We will be running private tours throughout the academic year. The school remains at full capacity and we look forward to welcoming families to Kirkham Grammar School for these private tours.
