Old Wykehamists and Don Soc members are always most welcome, but we have been asked by the Security Committee to remind those who wish to visit the school (other than for an event, when the instructions issued may be different, and also when visiting as a spectator at matches) that they must contact the Porters' Lodge to check whether school is open for visitors.  This should be done at least 24 hours in advance of the planned visit, or by Friday midday for weekends: +44 (0)1962 621227, or Email.

They should arrive at the Porters’ Lodge and not enter by any other gate and will be asked to produce identification and sign the OW or Don Soc Visitors books; they will be issued with a Visitors’ badge and lanyard, to be worn conspicuously during their visit, please, and returned as they leave through the same gate. They will also be given a map showing areas of the school that may be visited. Safeguarding and Child Protection regulations have become ever tighter and OWs and ex-staff are no longer allowed to come and go at will. 

Formal tours can be arranged through the Enterprises Office:
