Open Days

Come and see what makes us unique!

An Open Day is a fantastic opportunity to experience first-hand the many qualities of this remarkable school. We are located in 12 acres of beautiful countryside which allows us to enjoy lots of outdoor learning opportunities. Small, superbly equipped classes with generous staff/child ratios enables a high level of individual academic & pastoral care.

If you would like to attend our upcoming Open Morning on Monday 24th January at 9:30am please contact the School Office on 01884 252393 or prep@blundells.org to book a place (please note booking is essential). If you are unable to attend the Open Morning but would like to visit us please contact the School Office and we would be delighted to arrange a tour for you and your family.

Until then, you can see a snapshot of life in our school in the video below.
