Open Mornings

Until further notice we have had to postpone our Open Mornings until the School can re-open. We would love to help you with any enquiry so please do contact us in the meantime via email: registrar@ballardschool.co.uk

Our Open Mornings allow you can see the School in action, meet the team and get a personalised tour of our facilities, including 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.

We aim to match our pupil guides with your child’s areas of interest, so booking is essential. 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.

Each of our Friday Open Mornings are held on a normal school day so that you can experience the real Ballard. In addition, we also hold a Saturday Open Morning in June which provides a showcase for our creativity across all areas of our School. This event is attended by all our current parents and pupils so you will be part of the Ballard family for the morning. To give you a taste of a Saturday Open Morning, please see our video, ‘Join the journey’

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.

We are also recommending that people register their interest for September 2022 and September 2023 entry as soon as possible. Should you require any further information, please contact our Registrar, Lynsey Davis




Ballard School
Virtual Open Day


Welcome to Ballard.

In light of current circumstances and safety restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to open our doors for our traditional Open Mornings.

We have therefore created a ‘Virtual Open Day’, where you may tour our beautiful School and learn everything you need to know about our School.
