School Open Day visits are a must. The 11 Plus exam provides the means by which the private or grammar school selects the pupils they want on their roll.

On the other hand, the School Open Day gives parents an opportunity to decide whether they want their child to sit the 11 Plus exam for that particular school and ultimately be enrolled as a pupil. It is the main method used by parents in their selection process.

It is extremely important that you take your child to visit the schools on your list and take advantage of the opportunity to see its facilities, meet and talk to teachers, explore classrooms, hear about the school’s successes and future plans. Schools offer specific dates and the most popular schools require parents to book a place as early as possible after release of the Open Day dates, whether it be for Open Mornings, Open Afternoons or Open Evenings.
