Open Mornings

You are invited to our next Open Morning at award-winning Ballard School. Come and 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.

All tours must be booked in advance by calling 01425 626900 or emailing our registrars: registrar@ballardschool.co.uk

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.
