Our Headmistress is happy to meet prospective parents and pupils, and show them around the school, by appointment, throughout the year.
We normally hold 3 open events throughout the academic year, where the school is open for prospective families to look around and see what we do. During tours, staff are happy to talk about their departments and pupils will happily show the standard of their work. An open event is a good opportunity for you to see what Hollygirt can offer your child. It allows prospective families who may have visited several schools to compare how the pupils present themselves, what the school feels like, what quality of work is produced and what sort of experience a pupil can expect to have at Hollygirt.
There are lots of things for prospective pupils to do along the way, with souvenirs and literature to take home.

Year 5 Taster Day in Senior School
Each Summer Term we hold a Taster Day for pupils, currently in Year 5, who are looking for a Senior School place in Year 7. Our next Taster Day will be for children looking for a Year 7 place from September 2020. Pupils are able to experience what lessons are like, sample our lunches and meet current pupils and staff.

Year 7 Entrance Day
The Entrance Day for pupils who will be 11 on or before 31st August in the year of entry to the Senior School takes place during the previous Spring Term in mid-January. The Entrance Day is not a formal assessment. The pupils will be placed into small groups and take part in a number of lessons with key teachers which will give us an indication of their abilities, aptitudes, attitudes to learning and social skills. Additionally each pupil will have an interview with the Headmistress or a senior member of staff. Places will be offered to pupils who display qualities that suggest they will respond well to a Hollygirt education.
