Alleyn's School

Alleyn's is foremost a selective, co-educational school and we attract families and children with diverse 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 but vibrant atmosphere, so that high levels of participation are possible for all children.

About the school

Diverse interests and talents need to be nurtured outside the classroom too. So, there are a wealth of co-curricular opportunities for pupils to develop their individual gifts and talents. We have a large number of voluntary clubs each term, and it is through the personal interest and commitment that the children show in these clubs that we make up our sport teams and music groups (amongst other things). The children develop a great sense of purpose and confidence in their ability to participate. It really works!

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 programme is supported by a strong house system that extends from Reception (4 year olds) all the way through school to Year 6, and then on into the Senior School too. 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 unifying.

Alleyn's has a wonderful history and must continually balance its historic values with the demands of a changing society. The school was founded by Edward Alleyn in 1619, 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 then academic success.
