Visiting the school

Welcome to Gresham’s

A tour is the best way to gain a feel for our school, as well as the surrounding areas of outstanding beauty.

Open Days

We hold a number of Open Days at all three schools during the year and they are an excellent overview of what a Gresham’s education has to offer.

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 Headmistress 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

Taster Days

We hold a number of Taster Events throughout the year. Following an individual visit to the school, children can choose to attend a taster day which provides an opportunity to join a normal school day and get a flavour of school life. There are also opportunities for children to attend one of our taster events where a number of group activities led by teachers take place which provides an informal introduction to a Gresham’s education. If you are interested in finding out more about our taster days, please contact:
