Visiting the Upper

Come and see for yourself
what a Perse education has to offer

Book a tour

We hold afternoon tours on selected afternoons during term time (Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays). Tours begin at 2.05pm, usually with a prefect-led tour of the School, after which you will have the opportunity to meet the Head Ed Elliott or our Assistant Head (Welfare and Admissions) Gail Hague informally over a cup of tea. The discussion usually finishes by 3.30pm. We limit tours to a maximum of five families.

Please complete the form to register your interest in booking a tour of the Upper, and a member of our admissions team will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient date. Alternatively, contact Deborah Cross or Gemma Westcott in our Admissions Office on 01223 403805 or by emailing

Taster mornings

Our taster mornings give pupils currently in Year 6 and Year 8 an opportunity to sample a typical day at The Perse. The next Upper Taster Morning is on Saturday 15 October 2016. Pupils have the opportunity to study new subjects, make new friends and even try a school lunch. Please contact our Admissions Office on 01223 403805 or email to book a place.

Open days

We hold open days twice a year, on mornings in the Michaelmas term and the Summer term.

The autumn Upper open morning was held on Saturday 1 October 2016. Our next open morning will be on Friday 23 June 2017.
