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.

By visiting us and getting a feel for the surroundings, both you and your children will be able to make a better-informed decision as to whether Colchester High School is the right place for them to learn and grow as a person.

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.
