Top co-educational Prep School 2014 in London
Alleyn’s Junior School are proud to announce that we have been ranked 6th in the Sunday Times 2014 ‘Top 100 Prep Schools’ national list.
We are also the highest ranking co-educational prep school in London and second in the country.
The three English scores are averaged and added to the maths result from Key Stage 2 in 2013 to produce this ranking.
Headmaster of Alleyn's Junior School
We are delighted to announce that Mr Simon Severino, Headmaster of St Andrew’s Prep School, Eastbourne, has been appointed to succeed Mrs Alison Wright as Headteacher of Alleyn’s Junior School from 31st August 2015.
Mr Severino, who is married and has two young children, has considerable experience in junior schools over the past twenty years. He read Geography at Oxford University, before starting his career at Culford Prep in Suffolk. From there, he went to Dulwich Prep London, where he was Head of Geography and Deputy Head (Head of Middle School). Since 2010 he has been Headmaster of St Andrew’s Prep, an IAPS school which is incorporated with Eastbourne College, an HMC senior school.
He believes passionately in holistic education, sharing with us a view that academic excellence and first-rate pastoral care are best served by a vibrant co-curriculum and a clear ethos anchored in shared values. Mr Severino is very much looking forward to joining the Alleyn’s community, where he and his family will be warmly welcomed.

Fuelled by an excellent assembly from Southwark Recycling, the Alleyn's Junior School Community had the opportunity to recycle any unwanted items. Our Eco-councillors enjoyed helping to dispose of the items in this environmentally friendly way.
School Vision lighting
Alleyn's Junior School is one of only five schools in the country to install a revolutionary new type of classroom lighting system called 'School Vision'.
School Vision emits light similar to that of natural daylight; it gauges changes to surrounding light and adjusts itself automatically. It can also be set at different degrees of brightness: one for quiet reading, another for active learning that energises children and another setting for a calmer teaching space if required.
