About Us

We all want our children to be happy at school, to have the opportunities to fulfil their potential, enjoy co-curricular activities and to grow into compassionate, happy and successful individuals.

In choosing a school, all parents hope to find one with which they have an affinity. The open events we hold enable us to show you what makes Alleyn's Junior School unique, and I would encourage you to consider our aims in relation to your child's needs.

Alleyn's is a selective, co-educational school and we attract families and children from diverse backgrounds with a range of personalities, talents and interests which need to be met. So, we aim to create an environment for each child to achieve their best academic progress by developing the children's sense of confidence. To this end we offer small class sizes in a well-structured school where teachers work towards creating a calm, purposeful and vibrant atmosphere, so that high levels of participation are possible for all children.

Diverse interests and talents should be nurtured outside the classroom too. So, there is a wealth of co-curricular opportunities for pupils to develop their individual strengths and passions. With over one hundred clubs each term to choose from the children can explore new interests, learn new skills, mix with different children and develop new passions.

Bright children with bright futures need to have opportunities to develop a sense of team spirit and to take individual responsibility for themselves and for others. The school's pastoral care is supported by a strong house system that extends from Reception all the way through the school to Year 6. Our children love their school very much and this is because the relationships they have with each other, as well as with their teachers, are mutually supportive.

Alleyn's has a wonderful history that we cherish along with a desire to remain at the forefront of education. We aim to prepare our children for the demands of an ever-changing society and world. The school’s origins can be traced back to Edward Alleyn in 1619, who was arguably the most famous Shakespearean actor of the Elizabethan age. From its origins, Alleyn's has continued to create a school where children and teachers respect each other in a friendly, safe and happy environment. In doing this we lay the foundations for future personal and academic fulfilment.

Alleyn's is both a happy and engaging school for children and teachers, and our girls and boys love their school very much. If you feel your child would benefit from what we have to offer then please get in touch with us. We look forward to meeting you.
