Individual Meetings

If our Open Morning/Evening, dates/times are not convenient for you a private visit can be arranged.

In the Lower School visits include a guided tour of the school by the Head of Lower School, and a follow-up meeting to address any queries or questions that may arise.

In the Senior School, an individual visit to the school involves a tour of the school with the Admissions Team and then some time spent with the Principal.

For OLA 6th, a visit includes a guided tour of the school with the Admissions Team and then some time spent with our Head of OLA 6th or our Principal.

The tour and the subsequent meeting take approximately one hour. Individual visits can normally be arranged any day during term time.

Please contact Admissions to arrange a visit: email or telephone 01235 544808.

Experience Days And Taster Days

Making the right decision on the best school for your child is a very important issue for parents. To help, OLA provides Experience Days and Taster Days for children and their parents to experience what a school day at OLA is all about.

At an OLA Experience Day children can try a wide range of activities, meet our teachers and make new friends. At an OLA Taster Day children get to join in and be part of an actual class and meet their ‘buddy’ for when they start at OLA.

We provide Experience Days for Year 5 children considering entry into Year 7 in our Senior School. New for 2021, we have a Year 10 OLA 6th form experience day.

We provide Taster Days for Year 2 and 3 children considering entry into Year 3 and 4 in our Lower School.
