Open Days - throughout the pandemic, we have changed the way we offer Open Mornings

In order to reduce the risk of transmission and infection during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not scheduled our usual Open Mornings and we have altered the timing of our tours for prospective parents.

We are currently offering external tours of the site during the day and internal tours from 4.30pm (weekdays) or 11.00am on Saturdays.

Pre-COVID-19, we considered every day to be an 'Open Day' at Fairfield and we were happy to welcome prospective parents at any time for an individual tour of the school. We are a friendly and welcoming nursery and school and establishing strong links between school and home is fundamental to our ethos. Throughout the pandemic, although access to our site for parents is more restricted than it used to be, we continue to do our utmost to provide continuity and consistency to the children when they are in school and nursery by creating a safe and secure environment for them and by sharing as many special moments as we can with parents via technology.

Prospective pupils are invited to spend a morning or full day with us before starting, to enable them to gain an understanding of life at Fairfield and to enable us to assess them informally.

For further details, please contact our Admissions Officer, Cathy Scott, on 01275 462743 or bursar@fairfieldschool.org.uk or use the form below to register your interest.

“Our son joined Fairfield in Year 2. His teacher discovered he was worried about making mistakes so she taught him that there is a positive side to getting things wrong, that's how we learn and figure things out. It was a huge step forward for our child. From that point to Year 6 he has developed from a shy child into a confident young man.

This school really does take notice of the quiet children.”
