Searching for a school has never been harder: so much choice and competition. Time to do your research? Here’s our list of School Open Days

Whether you’re starting out on the schools hunt, or long in the tooth, the best way to find out about a school is to go and see it in action. Autumn is usually the busiest time for school open days but spring and summer also sees a flurry of dates. Our list contains key pre-prep, prep and secondary schools in London and further afield, including boarding options. Keep up to date on tips for things to ask and look out for when you visit, and much more besides on our education pages and through the regular Instagram Lives we do with our education partner, The Good Schools Guide. Otherwise, scroll on through our open day list and add the dates to your diary!
