Taster Days

Two years before entry, potential pupils are invited to attend a Taster Day, to give them a feel for life at Milton Abbey, a chance to see boarding Houses and the opportunity to meet others joining at the same time.

Whilst our site is currently closed to external visitors; we would like to let you know that our Taster Days will be held virtually and take a different format. Please register your interest with if you would like to hear more about the forthcoming events. Please us the below information as a guide to how we usually run these events.
