Visitors are very welcome to participate in the following lectures and virtual walk and to get a link/invitation should register their interest, via email, to info@ tas-englemere .

 Architecture, History and Material Culture of Moorish Spain 7.45pm Tuesday 13th October 2020 (once registered, please join from 7.30pm onwards)

The Alhambra of Granada, the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the Alcazar of Seville are three of the most impressive monuments to the architectural creativity of the Moors in Spain.  The classical origins that influenced the Moorish style are less well-known, but their unique interior decorative style certainly gave their architecture beauty and exotic appeal.  Ian Cockburn’s lecture will provide a comprehensive introduction to the Iberian peninsula’s Moorish architecture.  

Ian has a Masters degree in medieval Spanish art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art.  He is a specialist in the nearly 800 years of Moorish occupation and Christian reconquest of medieval Iberia.

Given the current situation we are monitoring what the Government advises and will post here exact times of any tours/open events. 

A Senior Open Evening is held in the Autumn term.  There is a presentation from the Principal along with a tour of the school by our older girls with interactive activities throughout the school.  This gives you and your daughter a chance to see and speak to subject teachers and have a taste of the subjects taught.  This year it will be a virtual tour with live Q&As from the Principal. 

Open Mornings are held in the Spring and Summer term for the both the Prep and Senior Phase. They start with a short presentation from the Principal and are followed with a tour of the school by our current girls. At the end of the tour, the key staff members will be on hand to answer any queries you have be it on the curriculum or bus routes. 

Taster Day is for current Year 5 girls to spend the day in the Senior Phase experiencing school life.  This is hugely popular and has a limited number of places. Priority is given to girls who have registered and paid their registration fee. 

Sixth Form Options Evening takes place in the Autumn term and is open to anyone interested in registering for the Sixth Form.  There is a talk from the Director of Sixth Form and a chance to talk to subject teachers about the AS and A Level syllabus for their subject.

We will happily arrange a tour at a time to suit you if you are unable to attend our next open event.


Socially- distanced tours of the school with the opportunity to meet with either our Principal or Vice Principal Preparatory Phase or we can use Teams if you would prefer to meet virtually.

The Jumps season returns to Ascot with a bang, as one of the region’s biggest fireworks displays follows a thrilling afternoon’s racing featuring the £100,000 Sodexo Gold Cup Chase.

In addition to the racing, plenty of fun may be found away from the track, with free fairground rides including both high-adrenaline attractions for teenage thrillseekers and gentler ones for younger racegoers. Children can also enjoy face painting, roaming entertainers, arts and crafts, and even a pop-up cinema screening a classic family favourite in Ascot’s Pavilion along with soft seating, drinks and popcorn. 
After racing, a breathtaking pyromusical show will see over 20,000 fireworks fired from the centre of the racecourse to light up the skyline and bring the curtain down on a spectacular family day out.
Fireworks only tickets are also available, granting access into the racecourse from 4pm onwards, with the display due to begin at 6pm. Please note, fairground rides will cost £1 per ride after this time, with all proceeds going to charity.
Fireworks only tickets will be on sale soon.
