Open Week

mon 23 - sat 28 november

Following the success of our first Open Week at Sedbergh Prep School, we are pleased to announce another one will be held from 23rd to 28th November.

During Open Week, individual families will have the opportunity to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team, academic and boarding staff, as well as taking a tour of the School in a socially distanced manner. To book one of the limited daily slots, please complete the form on this page and our admissions team will then contact you to confirm the time for your visit.

Please note that only pre-registered visitors from one household are permitted to attend. Families will be asked to complete a declaration of agreement prior to their visit, relating to Covid-19 protocols the School has in place. We do ask that, if possible, each visitor over 11 wears a face covering for the duration of their visit. We will endeavour to fulfil visit requests to the Senior School on the same day, however these are subject to availability.

Please complete the form on this page to organise your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sedbergh Prep School soon.

The small, safe yet vibrant market towns of Sedbergh (home to Sedbergh Senior School) and Kirkby Lonsdale (closest town to the Prep School) are situated between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, two of the most visited National Parks in Europe. Just 10 miles apart from each other, both Schools benefit from excellent road and rail links, and two international airports are within easy distance.

By Road

Sedbergh Senior and Prep Schools are under five miles from the M6, giving fast motorway access to Scotland, the Midlands and the South. From the North East the recommended route is either the A1 and A66 from Scotch Corner or, if living further south, the A65. The A684 through the Yorkshire Dales is beautiful, but very much slower.


Both Schools are within a 90 minute drive of Manchester and Liverpool international airports, with Manchester Airport having domestic connections from London Heathrow and Gatwick and also serving European and Worldwide destinations.


Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale are 25 minutes from the Lake District town of Kendal, and just 35 minutes from the city of Lancaster. Oxenholme Lake District station can be reached by direct trains from London Euston within 2 hours 40 minutes and is a key stopping point on the West Coast Main Line.
