Announcing our new junior school
City of London School for Girls and City of London School are proud to be opening a joint junior school from September 2022.
"A very warm welcome to our junior school; thank you for visiting our website. I do hope our video gives you a sense of the enormously exciting journey that lies ahead, both for us as we work towards the opening of our junior school at Gray's Inn in September 2022 and for your child as they approach Year 3 and their schooling beyond."
It is my belief that children should be well supported to learn to the very best of their ability, whilst at the same time being given the freedom to fully enjoy their childhood. At our school, girls and boys will receive a rigorous yet rounded education. A thoughtfully designed curriculum will provide many opportunities to create, connect and collaborate both within and beyond the classroom. Your child will be encouraged to ask questions, take risks and think creatively. Technology will be used judiciously to enhance learning, and sport and the arts will feature prominently in school life. Kindness and compassion, for self and others, will be modelled and taught: the happiness and wellbeing of your child will be at the heart of all that we do. All this we will do within the beautiful setting of Gray's Inn and with the full support of our parent schools, CLSG and CLS.
I hope that you can imagine your child happy and thriving at our school. Please do take the time to register your interest and follow us on social media. No doubt you will have some questions, and you may find some of the answers in our frequently asked questions. We would be delighted to talk with you on the phone or over email, please don’t hesitate to be in touch. Later in the summer, we will be holding an open event which will provide a great opportunity to meet you in person and explain in more detail what will make our school such a special place to learn.
Rachel Thompson, Head of the junior school
“We could not be more delighted to be working together on this wonderful endeavour. The junior school represents the best of educational partnership in so many ways: not only between our two schools, but also with Gray’s Inn, the City of London Corporation and all the schools in the City of London family.”
Alan Bird, Head
City of London School
“What a joy to take this exciting step forward in a school which so beautifully expresses our joint values in its inclusivity and academic excellence. I look forward to generations of junior school girls and boys beginning their educational journeys through to CLSG and CLS from this stunning school in the heart of Gray's Inn.”
