Visiting the school

Ordinarily we would hold an Open Morning in May and October. Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the Government guidance surrounding it, we will not be holding an Open Morning in 2020.

However, we would be delighted to welcome you to Gresham’s for an individual visit. Our website gives you an impression of all that a Gresham’s education can offer but is no substitute for a visit. We have worked hard to ensure we can welcome families into the School in a safe and controlled manner.

Individual Visits


We are happy to schedule an individual visit to the Senior School. This normally includes a tour of the school with a pupil and a visit to a boarding house, followed by a meeting with the Headmaster.  We are able to arrange visits on Monday to Friday during term time and the school holidays. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact our Admissions team on 01263 714614 or email


The Head, Mrs Cathy Braithwaite, always welcomes the opportunity to meet parents and show them the school on a working day. To make an appointment, please contact Helen Dye on 01263 714600 or

Nursery and Pre-Prep

We recognise that choosing your child’s school is a very important decision and the Head, Mrs Sarah Hollingsworth, is always very happy to show you around the school and answer any questions you may have. To make an appointment, please contact Mrs Alison Gainher on 01263 714575 or

Places to Stay

Visiting parents often ask for recommendations on places to stay close to the school.  We have a list that you might find helpful.
