Staff benefits

We have our own very competitive salary scale. Some fee remission is available for children of permanent members of staff attending Alleyn’s Senior and Junior Schools, subject to meeting the admissions criteria, and is a non-taxable benefit. There is also some fee remission available at Dulwich College and James Allen’s Girls’ School, though the terms and conditions are different, and it is a taxable benefit.

There are also many other staff benefits, not limited to but including:

- free lunches

- use of the sports facilities, including the pool and gym

- discounts with various local shops and businesses

- discounted private healthcare

- access to the cycle to work scheme

Working at Alleyn’s is a rewarding and enriching experience.

Our location

East Dulwich and Peckham are exciting and vibrant with lots of independent shops, restaurants and bars, as well as a PictureHouse cinema and some really useful larger chains, while the pace of life in Dulwich Village is a bit slower but still buzzing with life, especially at weekends. We are lucky enough to count several excellent state and independent schools close by, as well as Dulwich Picture Gallery and the fabulous Dulwich Festival, showcasing local artists (including writers, actors and musicians) twice a year.

Alleyn's School building

We are 20 minutes by train from central London and perfectly located for exploring the city. Dulwich, however, has managed to remain leafy and green with several great parks and Dulwich Woods all on our doorstep.
