FAQs

What standard should Open Day participants be at on their principal instrument?

Those registered for Eton (who go on to receive a conditional place) are eligible for a wide range of awards. We suggest that boys attending the open day should have the potential to reach around Grade VI on their principal instrument at the point at which they audition in the January of Year 8. Those who attend who are not already registered for Eton would need to be considerably more advanced to have a realistic chance of securing one of the top music awards.

Who should bring the children to the Open Day, and are they required to stay?

A teacher, parents or a guardian are warmly welcome to attend. It is expected that adults attend for the whole event, as there will be lots of information to share with them and the tour and concert will be of interest.

Is Eton affordable?

Eton welcomes talented boys, whatever their background, and can offer significant levels of financial support (up to 100% of full fees). Ask about means-tested bursaries at the Open Day.

Do we need to bring anything?

Just your instrument(s)! Food and drink will be provided. Remember to let us know of any food allergies when booking.

Dress code

Participating children will generally wear their school uniform, but this is not compulsory.
