Independent Schools Football Association
In association with the Independent Schools Football Association we hosted an U8 and U9 festival. All of the sessions were led by Alleyn’s coaching staff and players. Visiting staff and parents were delighted with the fun the children had and the learning that had taken place. Alleyn’s is a Hub School for the ISFA and reports and photographs from the festivals will appear on the ISFA website in the “Juniors” section so do visit and have a read at www.isfa.org.uk
It is official - we are Golden!
We want to acknowledge and thank the many people, across the Junior and Senior Schools at Alleyn’s, who have helped us gain Gold accreditation in Southwark under the TfL STARS scheme.
Our achievement was the combination of so many activities such as the cycling clubs, the “bike-it” crew, assemblies and lessons on cycling and personal safety, the Safe Routes to School Committee, the Eco-Council and other school committees, “Walk to School Week", the "cycle-to-work” scheme and the general encouragement of the pupils and staff to cycle, scooter or walk to school, that has made this possible.

Sunday Times Parent Power
We are very happy to feature in The Sunday Times Parent Power supplement, recently making our way into the top ten of their 2016 ‘Top 100 Independent Prep Schools’, SATs-based list.
At Alleyn’s Junior School we pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach to the education and well-being of our boys and girls. As one of only three co-educational schools in the top ten, our Parent Power appearance is testament to the standards that happy children can achieve with the support of their teachers over the years.

Kodály Celebration Concert
On Monday evening, our Chamber Choir performed at the Kodály Celebration Concert at St John’s, Smith Square. They performed ‘Lord of the Dance’ and joined with children and adults from schools around the UK to sing ‘Songmakers’, composed and conducted by Douglas Coombes, and ‘A Tree of Song’, a brand new piece composed by Bob Chilcott for the occasion. It was a fantastic experience to perform in such an iconic venue and the children’s singing and conduct was a credit to the school. Congratulations to all involved
World Book Day
The Junior School Library monitors distributed World Book Day tokens to each class on the first Thursday of March which marked the 20th Anniversay of World Book Day. Happy reading!

IAPS National Swimming Rounds
Well done to two of our Year 5 pupils who took part in the preliminary rounds of the IAPS National swimming championships. They have both worked exremely hard for this with a tough training schedule both in and out of school. We are all very proud of you.
Visit to Southwark Recycling Centre
Year 4 went on a journey to discover more about what happens to our waste and recycling. The education centre provided an informative and engaging experience to encourage sustainable waste management and even gave the children an opportunity to sort out waste using a smaller version model of the recycling machinery. The children certainly did not think it was a load of old rubbish.
