Overview

 

Alleyn’s is one of the top academically achieving co-ed schools in London, attracting children with diverse and exciting talents. The aim of the school is therefore to create an environment where each child can thrive academically and develop a deep sense of confidence and self worth.

 

Particular strengths include:

 

Science – in 2015 the school was awarded the highest accolade of Gold in Science by an independent assessor, the Primary Science Quality Mark.

 

Drama and performance – the school was founded in 1619 by Edward Alleyn, one of the foremost Shakespearean actors of the Elizabethan age. This heritage underpins the school’s belief that as a subject, drama can strongly inform both formal and informal learning: ‘by encouraging imagination and self-discipline, drama unlocks children’s hidden talents and potential that may otherwise not be seen in the normal course of a day’.
