Admissions Overview

School Tours – October 2021

We are pleased to be able to offer a number of school tours during a normal school day between Monday 4th October and Monday 20th October.  These tours will be aimed at current Year 6 and Year 5  parents/carers and will be restricted to a maximum of 2 visitors per family (this can be a child and parent/carer or two parents/carers).   There will be a further opportunity for families with children in other year groups to visit the school towards the end of the summer term.   Tours are approximately one hour in length and will include an introduction from one of our Senior Leadership Team.  If you are a Year 5 or year 6 parent/carer this is your opportunity to walk around the school and see it in action.

*Please note Public Health have advised that all visitors (this includes children)  to the school must carry out a lateral flow test on the day of the visit and bring evidence of the negative test result and wear a face covering throughout the visit. We are grateful to you for following this advice.  *

Prospective Parent Virtual Open Day Information

Our student Tech Crew team have produced some additional  information videos to give all interested parties further insight into life at Dame Alice Owen’s School .

Dame Alice Owen’s School is a secondary day school for boys and girls aged 11-18. Originally founded in 1613, we are Voluntary Aided in status and admit children across the ability range. 65 children per year out of the available 200 places, however, are selected according to aptitude and ability as determined by the Governors’ Entrance Examination and an additional 10 places are selected by Music Aptitude tests.

Applications are welcome from parents whose children are likely to make a full and committed contribution to the extra-curricular life of the school, and to benefit from the extensive additional facilities and opportunities provided by the Dame Alice Owen Foundation. Our Governors are legally responsible for admissions to the school, and offers of places are approved by our Governors’ Admissions Committee. Governors are fully committed to maintaining our family focus with the sibling criterion, whilst retaining partial selection and musical aptitude.
