Discovery Days and Taster Days

Discovery Days

The school offers regular Discovery Days, usually once a term, for prospective pupils.

These events are an ideal occasion for a first visit to Holmwood House, as they provide a fun and relaxed way to meet the staff and see the facilities. However, it is also beneficial for those children who are already registered to attend, as they will have the opportunity to meet other children also joining the school, enabling them to make friends before they start, as well as allowing them to familiarise themselves with their surroundings.

Discovery Days are free of charge to attend and open to any children in the age bracket given for each event.

The next Year 7 Discovery Evening is on Tuesday 27 September 2022 and is ideal for children in Years 5 and 6. Places are limited so please click here to register your attendance.


The next Pre-Prep Discovery Day is on Saturday 1 October 2022 and is ideal for children aged 2 to 4 years. Places are limited so please email click here to register your attendance.


Taster Days

Children looking to join Holmwood House from Year 1 and up are invited to join us for a taster day. Following the usual school timetable, this enables the children to experience everything Holmwood House can offer.  For more details, please contact our Admissions Registrar, Lucy Dyson, on or 01206 673750.
