This is a school that gives every child an opportunity to challenge themselves both in and outside the classroom, and to have enormous fun doing so. The school emanates warmth and creativity but is convincing in its commitment to achieving academic excellence relative to the ability of every pupil.

We welcome you to join us for our open mornings where you can see Chandlings Prep in action. The tours will give you a real flavour of what our school has to offer your child.

For the whole school open mornings, you will be toured around the school by our Year 6 students and at the end will have the opportunity to meet our Head and other senior members of staff. For the September Open Morning there will be lots of 'experiences' that your children can try where they will get a feel of what it would be like to be a pupil at Chandlings Prep. For our May Open Morning you will see Chandlings in action.

During our Early Years Open Mornings your children will have lots of fun experiencing just what it's like to be in Chandlings Prep's Pre-School.  At our Christmas Open Morning the children will enjoy lots of Christmassy fun. Singing around the Christmas tree, story time in front of the log fire, craft making in the Elf Workshop and there may be a special visitor too!  During the Spring Early Years Open Morning your children will enjoy planting magic beans in the Lavender Courtyard, climbing up Jack's beanstalk in the gym and hunting Easter Eggs in the Woods. 

We do hope you'll join us.  Just click on the 'Book Here' button and fill in the form.

Alternatively we can offer personal tours of the school which can be booked via our admissions department 

Have a little peak at our virtual tour which will give you a tour of the school and its grounds alongside short videos showing what goes on at Chandlings.
