Senior School 11+
Online registration for potential admission at 11+ in September 2021 is now closed. Registration for potential admission in September 2022 will open on 1 June 2021.
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.
The short films below, recorded in 2020 for Virtual Open Events, may provide a useful flavour of life at Alleyn's, and of the admissions process, until our events begin again.
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.
