Open Events

Our Open Events are designed to give you a flavour of what it is like to be part of the Freemen’s community with plenty of opportunity to meet and chat to our staff and pupils. Our Admissions Team will also always be available to answer any questions you may have about joining Freemen’s.

We have tried to arrange our events throughout the year, so that they are not only at a time to suit you, but also offer you and your child a variety of experiences.

Twice a year, we invite current Year 1 or Year 2 students in for Freemen’s Fun: an afternoon of activities specifically designed for your child to discover Freemen’s for themselves.

Once a year, we invite current Year 5 students in for Discover Freemen's: a morning or afternoon of activities designed for your child to see what Freemen's is like, in advance of sitting the entrance exam the following year, when they are in Year 6.

These events get booked up quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Given the current situation, and until we are able to welcome you to the School, we are offering the option to book a personal appointment with one of our Admissions Team.

Digital Appointments available with our Admissions Team

To arrange an appointment with a member of our Admissions Department at your convenience, please call 01372 822423 or email Our team will be able to answer all of your questions until such time as we are able to welcome you to the School for a tour.

  • Cool Computing - designing a picture on the computer
  • Game on - lively PE games
  • Musical Maestros - creating music with percussion
