We would like to welcome you to visit our primary this autumn for an individual tour and you can book a 30-minute slot for the following dates:

  • Tuesday 5th October 2021 – 9.30am-11am
  • Tuesday 16th November 2021 – 9.30am-11am
  • Tuesday 30th November 2021 – 9.30am-11am

Please contact the school office on to check availability or arrange a 1:1 meeting with the Admissions team, or you can directly book one of the Open Morning sessions on Zoom using this form. Please use the Primary Open Morning Tour booking form to book your tour.

Each ‘tour’ lasts approximately one hour and is with our Principal, Miss Emma Gowers, and our Head of Operations and School SENCO, Miss Joey Haigh. The Principal gives a short presentation on the school and then leads the tour. There are opportunities for questions during the tour and afterwards.

At the end of each tour, you will be issued a registration pack.

Primary School Taster Day – September 22 starters

If you’re interested in The Gower School, and you would like to experience what we can offer your child, please come along to our Taster Day 2021!

Priority booking will be for children starting Primary School in September 2022, with birthdays between 1st September 2017 to 31st August 2018. Places are limited as we will need to keep visitors within small groups. Therefore we must ask that only one adult attends our Taster Day with the child.

Join us for a carousel of bitesize activities and demonstrations from our specialist teachers. These will give both you and your child an idea of what life is like at The Gower School, and will last about an hour in total. All activities will be age-appropriate.

This is the perfect opportunity to meet the team, familiarise your child with the school, and interact with other families.

As you make your way from room to room, your child can expect to learn about different Montessori activities, arts and crafts, science, gymnastics and sports skills, and animals of the world. Plus, you’ll also get to meet our adorable pet guinea pigs Brownie and Fudge!

You can book either a Taster Day slot for you and your child or visit us during our Open House, but we strongly encourage booking for both for the best experience of the school.

You are very welcome to share the details of this event with any friends you believe may be interested.

We look forward to seeing you at our Taster Day, and showing you all The Gower School has to offer!

When? Saturday 9 October 2021: Taster Day 9:15am or 10:30am (fully booked) – book your slot |
Open House 12pm-1pm – book your place

Where? The Gower School Primary, 10 Cynthia St, Islington, London N1 9JF


For any sessions that take place at the school and not online, we would like to request a lateral flow test to be done before joining us. Our school community tests twice per week in order to keep the children and staff safe. You can order lateral home kits to be delivered to your home for free. The event will be socially distanced, while our cleaning team will be taking great care throughout the day to ensure all frequently touched surfaces are kept clean and hygienic. Please ensure you have a mask on while at the school and do not attend if you have any COVID symptoms.

Come and visit us this Autumn!


We look forward to welcoming you to The Gower School!
