Open Mornings & Events

The best way to get a real sense of King's Rochester is to visit us. We welcome individual tours every day during term time and hold two whole school Saturday open mornings each year where you can explore the entire school and enjoy a range of exciting hands-on activities in our classrooms. We also hold smaller visitor mornings throughout each term where you can come and see us on a usual working day.

We welcome guests to all our concerts including those in Rochester Cathedral and to  all our drama performances and hold a variety of open events each year at which we would be delighted to welcome you.

Whole School Open Morning - 7th May 2022

The Nursery, Pre-Preparatory School, Preparatory School, Senior School and Boarding Houses are open for tours and you will hear an introduction to King's from our Principal, enjoy a range of activities across the School with our pupils, and receive information on the School and the admissions process.

Due to high levels of interest in our events, the Principal will be delivering two presentations in the School Hall, the first at 9:15am and the second at 10:45am. This is to ensure we can welcome all guests safely into our historic buildings. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your preferred presentation time. The School Hall will be open from 9:00am and tours will be available throughout the morning.

Few schools are as lucky as King’s for its location. Our School lies within the conservation area of historic Rochester, by the banks of the River Medway and close to both the Norman Castle and Cathedral. As such, the School does not have parking available for our guests during Open Mornings. However, there are many public car parks located very close to the school. We, therefore, ask all visitors arriving by car, to park in one of the many local car parks, within easy walking distance of the School.

Please book a ticket per person ( for example: one parent and one child = 2 tickets) using the online booking system below:
