Our Admissions Process

Discover our seamless admissions process, offering personalised interviews, taster days, and bespoke support to ensure a smooth transition into our nurturing community.

Open Mornings

Open Mornings are the ideal way to discover St Leonards, explore our beautiful seaside campus and meet pupils and staff.

Our Open Mornings are typically held in May (Years 1-8 entry) and October (Years 1-13). During these events, prospective families are guided around the School by our pupil tour guides, hear from the Head and have opportunities to meet with key members of academic, boarding, pastoral, sport and support staff.

Members of the Senior Leadership Team, Admissions and Finance colleagues will be on hand throughout these events to talk to families in more detail and answer any questions you may have.

Individual Tours

We welcome individual visits by appointment on weekdays throughout the year. During your visit you will have the opportunity to meet with the Head, Mr Simon Brian and for Junior School visits, our Head of Junior School, Mrs Claire Robertson.

360º Tour

We also have a virtual tour of St Leonards, which gives those unable to visit us in person the opportunity to look around the grounds and see inside some of our buildings. Virtual tours can be guided live by a member of our Admissions Team by arrangement, or you can take a self-guided 360º tour.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • When is the best time to visit St Leonards?

    We welcome individual family tours throughout the year, or you can register to attend one of our Open Mornings in May or October. We recommend visiting St Leonards during term time to allow you to meet with as many key members of staff as possible, and to see our school in action.

  • Should I bring my child on my visit?

    Absolutely! It is so important that the School is the right fit for your child, as well as your family. We want them to be happy with us here at St Leonards, and encourage them to be involved in the decision. 

    Tours and Open Mornings cater for both prospective parents and guardians and for pupils, so they will certainly benefit from their visit.

    There will be opportunities to meet our current pupils too, which we hope will make your child feel at ease and allow them to gain insights into life at St Leonards.

  • Do I have to book a visit in advance?

    Yes, please. We ask that all visits are arranged in advance to allow us to make arrangements for guides and for meeting with key members of staff, who will be important to inform your choice of school. Registration is also required for Open Mornings, and details will be available on our website in advance of these events.
