Covid-19 Update - Introduction of the ISEB Common Pre-test
After much careful consideration of how we can safely and responsibly conduct our 11+ entrance examination this year, we have taken the decision to proceed with the ISEB Common Pre-test. This is an online test which will avoid the need for larger groups of children to attend the School site in person and thereby reduces the risk of Covid-19 transmission. For more information visit the ISEB information section further down this page.
The choice of the right secondary school for your child and the subsequent application procedure can seem, at first, challenging for both child and parent. At Alleyn’s we aim to make the whole process as friendly, smooth and clear as possible. Our Admissions team is on hand to guide parents through the various steps from initial interest, to visiting the School, to registration, to assessment and to confirmation of the outcome.
During the assessment phases we gain an understanding of the whole child, so whilst there is a strong focus on academic ability and potential, we also want to understand what each individual will be able to take from the co-curricular life of the School. We offer around 150 places, with two-thirds of these new children joining from a wide spread of state and independent schools, and the remaining children joining from Alleyn's Junior School.
In Year 7 we offer a number of academic, art, music and sport scholarships to pupils of exceptional merit. We also offer means-tested financial assistance to those families who could not otherwise afford an Alleyn’s education. The level of assistance varies in value up to 100% of annual fees, and is dependent on the financial circumstances of the parents.
We look for boys and girls, from all backgrounds, who will respond to the School's opportunities and values, and contribute with their talents and enthusiasm.
