We have many Open Mornings and visits throughout the year for all prospective parents and their families, where you will have the chance to meet our Head, current pupils and teachers as well as experience what Chandlings has to offer both inside and outside in our beautiful grounds. 

Our Nursery also hold Open Mornings for all Early Years children under 5.  This is for children who want to either come to our Nursery or enter at Reception.  Children will have the chance to experience a little bit of life at Chandlings.  You will see some lessons in action and at our next Christmas Open Morning  there might even be a special visitor! Do also ask us about our places for Reception and other Years. 

We warmly invite you to come and visit us either at one of our Open Mornings or on a personal tour. You will be able to see our wonderful facilities, meet the Head, staff and pupils and ask any questions you may have.

At our whole school Open Morning which takes place every September some of things you can experience are:

  • Ride on the Ponies
  • Visit the French Cafe
  • Try out the Low Ropes Course in the Bluebell Wood
  • Listen to stories from Teresa Heapy, an award-winning author, in the library
  • Have a go in the Nursery Gym
  • Try out the laser cutter in the DT room and make a bag tag

You will enjoy a tour of the school with our Year 6 tour guides who will inform you about all the goings on here at Chandlings Prep School. At the end of the tour you can enjoy some refreshments and the chance to meet the Head and other members of staff.

Chandlings is only 5 miles from Oxford, just off the A34 between Abingdon and Boars Hill.
