Magdalen College School (MCS) offers Open Mornings and Afternoons throughout the year, so that parents and their children can get a real taste of life at MCS, see the facilities, meet staff and current pupils, and ask questions.
Open Morning is held on a Saturday in September from 9.30am to 12 noon.
Prospective pupils can:
We welcome the whole family to our Open Morning, and activities are suitable for a wide range of ages. A variety of refreshments are also available. There is no need to book, and you are free to drop in during the course of the morning.
Open Afternoons offer the opportunity to see the school in action on a normal working day; booking is required for these as we aim to keep them more intimate.
Open Afternoons are recommended for families who have already attended an Open Morning. They begin with a talk by the Master followed by a tour of the school and tea in the Dining Hall with the Master, the Usher, Heads of Departments, Housemasters, Tutors and the Registrar.
You will find information about our open events on our Open Events page and our Admissions Pages will guide you through the timeline for application, including timings for Scholarship applications.
