City Junior School
We are an independent co-educational school for children aged 7-11 located in Gray's Inn, opening in September 2022.
A very warm welcome to City Junior School. Do take a look around and discover for yourself what makes our school such an exciting place for children to learn and grow.
We are proud of the things that make our school unique: our links, our location and our approach to learning.
Your child will benefit enormously from our links, not only to our parent schools – City of London School for Girls and City of London School, where pupils will transition at the end of Year 6 and whose facilities and specialist teachers they will share – but also to the The City of London Corporation and their family of schools. Engagement with the wider world beyond the school gates is very important to us, and children at City Junior School will develop a strong sense of social responsibility during their time here.
Our location, nestled in the peaceful surroundings of Gray’s Inn, allows us to easily enrich our curriculum with access to world-class learning resources on our doorstep. Galleries, museums, universities, concert halls, green spaces; we will make the most of all that this wonderful city has to offer. Fantastic transport connections mean that we attract families and staff from all over the capital, creating a diverse community within the school.
Our approach to learning empowers teachers as researchers, using evidence to inform their practice and enhance outcomes for all learners. In the classroom and beyond, children are taught how to think, not only for themselves but of others too. Academic standards are high, and so is the focus on wellbeing. City Junior School is, just like its parent schools, down to earth and unstuffy. We have fun, but we take the business of learning very seriously.
I hope that you can imagine your child happy and thriving at our school. Please do take the time to follow us on social media. We will be keeping you updated with the exciting renovation works, as we head towards September 2022 and the opening of our fantastic school!
