A Spirit of Possibility

Alleyn's is where 400 years of heritage, tradition and resourcefulness meet the liberal, exciting energy of southeast London. We are dynamic, enterprising, creative and full of fun; one of the country's leading co-educational independent day schools with a history of outstanding academic and co-curricular success. Alleyn's is a school at ease with itself, where there is space for young people to be whoever they want to be, to try new things and discover who they are in a highly supportive, generous and friendly community that is built on mutual trust and respect.
