Many children find that spending a taster day at King's the ideal way to find out if the School is the right fit for them. On a taster day, children are paired up with one of their prospective classmates who will show them the ropes, accompany them to their classes and anwer any questions they may have about life at the School. 

If you would like to arrange for an individual Taster Day for your child, please contact our Registrar, Mrs Susan Webb on 01634 888590 or
