Tours & Open Days

Experience Rookwood

The best way to find out more about Rookwood School is to experience it for yourself. We offer Open Days throughout the year as well as Taster Days for potential pupils to experience what life at Rookwood would be like for themselves. These are offered both on an individual basis or as a group.

We would also be happy to arrange a tour of the independent school on a day that suits you and offer 1:1 appointments to meet the Head directly.

Open Mornings

Our Open Morning (09.00 – 12.00) provides an opportunity to see the school in action, with a presentation from our Senior Leadership Team, a tour of the school and the opportunity to meet staff and pupils.

Our next Open Morning is taking place on the following date:

  • Thursday 2nd May 24 (whole school)



Reception Stay, Tea and Play

Join us for one of our fun-filled Reception Stay, Tea and Play sessions taking place this Summer term and discover all the ways children thrive in Reception. Reserve your spot or find out more about life in Reception at Rookwood by contacting us.

Taster Days

If you’ve decided that you would like to consider Rookwood School for your child, we would love to offer a Taster Day. Our Taster Days give your child the chance to see what it would be like to be part of the Rookwood family and experience the school, meet staff and interact with their fellow pupils for themselves. Please register your interest for future Taster Days.


Each year, we run a series of Taster Days for pupils interested in joining Rookwood School into Year 7. Please see below for details and the link to sign up.

  • Year 7 2025 Taster Day: Friday 10th May 2024 (9am – 4pm). The day will provide an opportunity for pupils to enjoy a range of fun team-building activities as well as familiarising pupils with the school’s site and staff. Places can be booked here.

Family Day

Rookwood School’s Family Day is when the whole Rookwood Family gather to celebrate the school’s successes that academic year.  We have limited spaces for external families to join us by invitation only.  Please register your interest for our next Family Day.
