We are very pleased to be able to open our doors and invite families to visit Sedbergh Prep School during one of our Open Days taking place this May.
Families will be offered an individual visit to the School, during which they will have the opportunity to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team, academic and boarding staff, as well as tour the school campus. We hope that this will help give an insight into life at the Prep School and highlight how we bring out the best in every child through our exciting curriculum, nurturing environment and unrivalled extra-curricular activities programme.
The Open Day on Monday 3rd May is specifically for families with a child interested in joining the school in Year 7 and will include the opportunity to meet (socially distanced) with some of our current scholars in Years 7 and 8
To book one of the limited number of daily visits available, please complete the form on this page and our admissions team will contact you to confirm a time for your visit.
Adults visiting the School may need to take a lateral flow test on arrival, subject to COVID-19 guidelines, but further information will be confirmed closer to your visit. All guests aged 11 or above will be required to wear a face covering whilst on the School site.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sedbergh Prep School this spring!

TRAVELLING TO SEDBERGH PREP & SENIOR SCHOOLS
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.
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.
