City of London School and City of London School for Girls have recently opened a new Junior School. Both boys and girls can apply for Year 3 entry. In 2025, the school is expected to become fully co-educational. [1]


Its facilities occupy the former City School of Law building, based in the heart of Gray’s Inn, at a walking distance of both senior schools. Its learning environment is safe and secure, complemented by modern and spacious classrooms and suites. Specialist teaching is provided in the areas of PE, art, science, drama, DT and music, and children also have the opportunity to use the Senior School sports facilities, including two swimming pools.

The school’s ethos is rooted in active efforts to promote kindness and compassion, as well as enable children to develop skills, experiences and friendships in conjunction with excellent academic results. The community is as diverse as it gets, widely accessible to pupils from various cultural backgrounds and different financial circumstances.
