Open Days and Private Tours

The best way to get a feel for Colchester High School – and whether it suits you and your child – is to come to see the school for yourselves.

Open Days and Private Tours

The best way to get a feel for Colchester High School – and whether it suits you and your child – is to come to see the school for yourselves.

At Colchester High School we believe it’s important for children to want to be here. That’s why we regularly invite parents and children to visit our school.

Our next event, Festive Friends: An Early Years Community Event, will be held on Thursday 16 December from 10 am to 11.30am.  Open to all children aged 2 to 5 years old, the children will enjoy a fun interactive morning exploring festive celebrations around the world.

Our next Open Morning will be held on Saturday 5 March from 10am – 1pm to provide prospective parents with an opportunity to learn more about our School.  The morning will include a welcome by the Headteacher, Ms Karen Gracie-Langrick and the opportunity to talk with staff and pupils and learn about our small, close knit community and individualised educational offering focussed on “Building A Bright Future for All”.

To book a place at the open morning or one of our other Admissions Events, please complete the short enquiry form below.
