We welcome all prospective parents to come along to one of our open mornings.  The Headteacher will be taking tours of the school every month on the below dates.  All tours start at 9.30am and last for roughly 45 minutes.

Places are limited, if you would like to book onto one of our school tours, please email  with your preferred date.

Please come along to the school office at the tour start time.  If you are unable to make the tour for any reason please let us know so we can offer the date to the waiting list.



Due to current circumstances, we are unfortunately unable to host school tours for any pupils applying for a place at Cookham Dean School. 

For those children due to start in reception 2021 and for any in year transfers, we will conduct a zoom call where we will show a short video clip of our school in action and you will hear from pupils and staff about the ethos and values of our school. During the zoom call, you will have an opportunity to ask questions via the chat facility. An invitation to join the zoom call will be emailed to you prior to your originally booked tour date via the school office.
