Familiarisation Day 2019

Familiarisation Day, Tuesday 18 June 2019

The day will start for both children and parents in the Coade Hall at 11am and will finish with tea at 3pm in the main school building. Bryanston has a dress code of black trousers/skirt with a polo shirt and leather shoes, and so we suggest your child is dressed in a similar style, rather than their own school uniform. Please register for Familiarisation Day by Monday 3 June 2019 at the latest.


Please ensure you send a photograph of your child before Familiarisation Day to with their full name and date of birth clearly stated in the accompanying email, as this will be needed for registration. Alternatively, please bring a photograph on Familiarisation Day with your child's full name and date of birth written clearly on the back.
