Friday Mini Lecture
On Friday 25 November journalist and author Giles Whittell delivered a fascinating lecture to a packed hall of children and parents on his specialist subject of spies. From James Bond to real life spies of the Cold War and today, we learned about their personalities, their secret work and considered whether they actually made a difference to the world around them.
South East London Football Tournament
The U10 Boys did us proud during the SEL football tournament. They had a wonderful session and didn't lose a game which resulted in them winning the tournament.

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
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.

Sunday Times Parent Power
We are very happy to feature in The Sunday Times Parent Power supplement, recently making our way into the top ten of their 2016 ‘Top 100 Independent Prep Schools’, SATs-based list.
At Alleyn’s Junior School we pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach to the education and well-being of our boys and girls. As one of only three co-educational schools in the top ten, our Parent Power appearance is testament to the standards that happy children can achieve with the support of their teachers over the years.
For a flavour of everyday life at Alleyn’s, follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Current parents can also keep up to date through the weekly Newsfeed bulletin, available on The Hub parent portal.
Straw and Order
The Infant Nativity for 2016 was performed by all the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The children performed wonderfully with amazing examples of acting, singing and dancing from children so young. Well done infants!
Thank you to all Alleyn’s Junior School pupils and staff who took part in Spotacular by wearing something spotty to school. We raised £412.50 for Children in Need.
Comedy comes to School
The inaugural comedy revue entitled ‘A Bit of a Laugh’ was brought to the stage of the school hall over two nights by some fifty plus Junior children. With a mix of classic comedy sketches and home-grown material there was plenty to amuse all sections of the audiences who packed into the hall to share smiles and laughter.
