Open Mornings

Next Open Morning – Friday, 3rd May 2024

We are delighted to be able to invite prospective parents and pupils into our award-winning School.

We have a number of Open Mornings through the academic year where you can see the School in action, listen to our Headmaster, Mr Andrew McCleave, meet the team, some current parents, and our pupils who will take you on a tailored tour of our fantastic facilities. At Ballard our pupils make full use of  our facilities which include a purpose-built Performing Arts Centre, full-sized multi-use Astro pitch, Music School with iMac suite, Dance Studio, fully-equipped DT, Food Tech and Science labs, Swimming Pool and three libraries; all set in our wonderful 34 acres of grounds, playing fields and woodland.

Booking is essential as we aim to match our pupil guides with your child’s areas of interest, so please let us know what their hobbies are. You will find out what we mean by ‘Bespoke Education’ and have an opportunity to talk to other parents and staff about our difference. We will give your child a rich variety of experiences at Ballard, all underpinned by our excellent academic reputation.

All tours (9:00am, 10:00am and 11:00am) must be booked in advance by calling 01425 626900 or emailing our Registrar, Laura Legg:

Refreshments are provided and there will be an opportunity to talk to a Ballard parent, a governor and key members of staff, including the Headmaster, before or after your tour.

So start your journey with Ballard by joining us and finding out why Ballard has been awarded the highest ratings of ‘excellent & outstanding’ by ISI & OFSTED.
