Junior School

Regular admission to Alleyn's Junior School occurs at 4+, 7+ and 9+, to join Reception, Year 3 and Year 5.

We are no longer accepting applications for potential 4+, 7+ or 9+ admission in September 2020.  From 1 September 2020, we will be accepting applications for potential admission in September 2021.

Alleyn's Junior School pupils have automatic entry to the Senior School but they still sit the scholarship/entrance exam with all other candidates. Usually, Junior School pupils are expected to make up one-third of the Senior School's Year 7 intake.

Occasional Vacancies

Places may sometimes arise in other age groups, outside the usual entry points. If you would like to be contacted by the Registrar should a vacancy arise in your child's age group, please complete this form.
