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.

Every term we hold a series of open mornings and other events to give you and your child a chance to look around the school, meet the teachers, talk to our Admissions Registrar, and get a taste of what life is like here.

We guarantee you’ll go away with plenty to talk about – whether it’s the quirky charm of our school buildings, the amazing work on display in our Art room, or the first-class array of facilities we make use of both on and off the school site.

Our forthcoming admissions events are listed below. To book a place, simply use the links provided. If none of the dates are suitable, don’t worry – our Admissions Registrar, Kate Cryne, will be glad to arrange a private tour at your convenience. Just give her a call on 01206 217116.
