Alleyn’s School

Junior School

Co-educational, academic
excellence in a caring, friendly,
and welcoming community

Co-educational, academic excellence

Welcome to the Alleyn’s Junior School website which aims to offer an insight into the life and character of this very energetic, happy and successful junior school that is a key part of the wider Alleyn’s School. Here you will gain a sense of our educational vision, which has academic excellence at its core, and how this is promoted through our broad curriculum and supported by our strong co-curricular and pastoral provision so that our children can learn and achieve in a purposeful, challenging and happy environment. We are proudly co-educational and also small enough to know every child really well so that they can flourish within our school community.

Details of the admissions process are clearly signposted and there is a link to our most recent inspection report. We hope that this site will complement a visit to the school for prospective parents while existing parents are provided with access to useful information. Links with the wider school community are also explained.  Above all, we hope that it offers a flavour of the opportunities and achievements enjoyed by our children, of whom we are so proud.

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


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.

Visit from Karl Hopwood

We received a visit from Karl Hopwood, an international expert on Esafety issues for schools, children and young people.  He spoke to all the children at our morning assembly, educating and discussing how to stay safe online and then ran workshops for Years 4-6, visiting classrooms asking the children how they use the Internet, and talking to them about age restrictions, social media, cyber-bullying, privacy and dangers of the Internet.  In the evening the AJSA arranged for him to give a talk to parents.
