Our guide was simply lovely. Very friendly and down to earth. Answered all our questions. My son was thrilled. He said in the car on the way home ‘if there is a school in heaven, I think it is that school’. He was simply bouncing with glee afterwards. Thank you!

Visiting Parent

Great to have pupils of different ages act as guides - gives different perspectives and great to see the older pupils interacting so well with their younger counterparts.

Saturday's open day felt welcoming, friendly and well organised. It gave our daughter a good chance to gather a feeling of the school and what it would be like to be there.

Fiona Goyder

We had a very positive experience visiting Pangbourne College. All the students we spoke to were positive and enthusiastic about attending the college. Overall the college came across as nurturing and inclusive. We would be pleased and confident of our son's happiness and achievement if he has the opportunity to become a student at Pangbourne.

Lawrence and Sonia Willson

The staff were so enthusiastic about their subjects and made us feel so welcome. The Sixth Form students were engaging and took their time to speak to the Year 10 pupils. A highly enjoyable and beautifully done event!

A very welcoming and friendly community.
