St Paul’s Juniors is a dynamic school, enjoying a reputation for academic, sporting, musical and all-round excellence. Situated in Barnes on the edge of the River Thames, it boasts fine grounds and open spaces.


Boys joining at 11+ quickly settle into life at the Junior School, supported by their ‘buddies’ who act as friends and guides in the first few days and weeks. On the first weekend of the academic year the boys enjoy an activity and teambuilding trip that helps to develop new friendships and bind the year group together.


The headmistress, Maxine Shaw, joined the school in 2016 and has since impressed both current and prospective parents. A great number of parents whose children held multiple offers have told us that they chose St. Paul’s Juniors due to the headmistress’ attitude and approach.
