Charity Cake Sale
AJS pupils had fun baking, buying and eating cakes for the cake sale which was held in aid of the the school's charity 'Action for Children'.
It is official - we are Golden!
We want to acknowledge and thank the many people, across the Junior and Senior Schools at Alleyn’s, who have helped us gain Gold accreditation in Southwark under the TfL STARS scheme.
Our achievement was the combination of so many activities such as the cycling clubs, the “bike-it” crew, assemblies and lessons on cycling and personal safety, the Safe Routes to School Committee, the Eco-Council and other school committees, “Walk to School Week", the "cycle-to-work” scheme and the general encouragement of the pupils and staff to cycle, scooter or walk to school, that has made this possible.
Independent Schools Football Association
In association with the Independent Schools Football Association we hosted an U8 and U9 festival. All of the sessions were led by Alleyn’s coaching staff and players. Visiting staff and parents were delighted with the fun the children had and the learning that had taken place. Alleyn’s is a Hub School for the ISFA and reports and photographs from the festivals will appear on the ISFA website in the “Juniors” section so do visit and have a read at www.isfa.org.uk
Year 3 are the final year group to share their work in Ed-Word and it is definitely worth waiting for. Also, look out for Science, Sport, Art, Music, Library and our Headmistress’s Report for 2014-2015. We hope you enjoy these very special end of year issues.

Pupils took part in the National Walk to School Week. By walking, scooting, cycling or park and striding to school, the focus of the week was on learning about the positive benefits to be gained for our bodies, our minds and the environment.
