James Allen’s Girls’ School


Celebrating a grounded approach and founded on a long standing tradition of diversity and access, JAGS is a genuine reflection of modern, south London life. We provide first class education to girls aged 4-18 with character and social conscience, developing their personal and professional skills to prepare them for adulthood. 

Key to our success is the ability attract a diverse mix of intellectually curious and dynamic pupils, with a means-tested bursary scheme making the school accessible to girls from all economic backgrounds. We are consistently ranked highly in national A-level results tables and students go on to study the top institutions in the UK and abroad.

Every girl is encouraged to explore a wide range of subjects when they join us, covering all key areas and including several language options and creative disciplines. As they mature and choose to focus on subject specialisms, our teachers will help them gain qualifications at the highest level as well as develop research skills and become independent learners.

Our facilities include 22 acres of playing fields and a sports complex that includes a swimming pool, climbing wall and astro pitches. A professionally designed theatre gives girls a chance to learn about performing arts whilst a vibrant music department holds performances throughout the year in our new Community Music Centre with its 500 seat auditorium and 15 practice rooms.

School trips in the UK and around the world provide further opportunities to enhance academic learning and broaden life skills. Recent trips include volunteering at a school in Uganda, an art trip to New York and performing concerts during a music tour of Italy.

At JAGS we care that your daughter is happy and we have a strong pastoral care team to give them support should they need it. We know that we are lucky and that we gain from sharing what we have. We are part of the community around us and, as a result, all of our girls are equipped to play an active role in society.
