Our Open Morning gives your family the chance to see St Olave’s in action.

As lessons take place across the school for our eight to thirteen year old pupils, you can meet the Master Andy Falconer, take a whole-school tour seeing subject teaching in progress, view Wentworth Boarding House and talk to current students and parents.

It’s the very best way to understand what makes St Olave’s so special: not just the outstanding learning and sports facilities, but the energy and commitment to learning that fills every classroom, corridor and learning space.

Please let us know you're coming.

Whatever subject is on the timetable, teaching at St Olave’s is informed by a Growth Mindset that nurtures collaboration, creativity, curiosity, embracing challenge, empathy, flexible thinking, initiative and perseverance. It is how we shape young people to be brave enough to take risks: essential if they are to grow into happy and successful adults.

Boarding helps children make the most of every minute. Wentworth Boarding House is close at hand, and for boarders learning and recreation are embraced equally with a packed weekend activities schedule full of new things to try with friends.

Boarding helps families make the most of their precious time together. Flexi-boarding means it is easier than ever to plan weeks that are productive and enjoyable.

Our houseparents work as a team with families to ensure children are supported, challenged and celebrated. Every day, we are proud to watch our boarders become confident, communicative, independent young people, who deal expertly with their peers.

Explore our cosy, friendly boarding house on our Open Day, meet houseparents and matron, see the accommodation and how pupils make the space their own. Learn more about life as a boarder.
