School tours and events

Ficino School provides opportunities throughout the year for *prospective parents to visit the school and learn more about our unique ethos and how our teaching practices provide the opportunity for our students to develop strong characters and build foundations that will benefit them throughout their educational journey and beyond.

*Please note that Ficino School is no longer enrolling international students.


School tours for prospective families are held regularly each term. Please note we currently have limited places in New Entrants and Years 1, 3, 5 and 7 in 2023. Applications for other Year groups will be for a place on the Waitlist.

You are invited to join the Principal, Peter Crompton, for a presentation that gives an overview of the School. It highlights some of the unique features of a Ficino education, aimed at assisting your child to achieve their full potential. These tours will give you a chance to look through the school and, if you wish, the Preschool.
