Junior School

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

From Sunday 1 September 2019 until midday on Friday 15 November, we will be accepting online applications for potential admission in September 2020.  Assessments will be undertaken in January 2020 with a view to offering places to children who show the potential to make the academic progress required to enter the Senior School at 11+.

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.

We will be holding our next Open Events on the following dates:

  • Saturday 21 September from 10.00 am until 12 midday
  • Thursday 3 October from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm

    All are welcome to attend these events and there is no need to book.
