What the school says...

At the heart of our school community are the children, from Reception to Year 6, who flourish within an avowedly co-educational and academically selective setting. Through the hard work and inspiration of the staff, the children are given the opportunity to enjoy a broad academic curriculum that is complemented by a rich co-curricular programme and supported by our excellent pastoral care, which places the class teacher at the heart of each child’s education and welfare.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2015, Simon Severino MA PGCE. Born in Italy, he was educated at St Peter’s, a state school in Bournemouth. He read geography at Oxford, followed by a PGCE. He has taught in prep schools for more than 25 years, starting his career at Culford Prep in Suffolk. He later moved to Dulwich Prep London, where he rose to become deputy head, and then to St Andrew’s Prep, Eastbourne, as head.

He describes Alleyn’s Junior as ‘very high-achieving and academic’ but stresses that it ‘isn’t a sausage machine’. ‘Everyone is academically able but there’s a variety of different characters here,’ he says. ‘Some are very quiet and some are extrovert. We want them all to come out of the school as the best possible version of themselves.’
