James Allen’s Girls’ School

JAGS is a 4-18 academically selective school for girls with a passion for life and learning.

Our pupils are drawn from a variety of social, cultural and economic backgrounds, which contributes to the success and character of JAGS. We celebrate the fact that our girls speak some 50 home languages.

Our long tradition of awarding means-tested bursaries enables as many as possible to enjoy a JAGS education, regardless of income. Currently between 16 and 20% of each year group benefit from our bursaries, with an average of 89% fee support.

Excellent specialist teachers and stimulating guest speakers help to expand horizons. Creative talent is displayed in writing, in pupil art and design works round the school and on loan in London, in performances in music, drama and dance. We are proud of our sporting opportunities and outstanding national and international achievements, our wealth of active community partnerships and our Green Flag award.

Pupils and teachers alike demonstrate an enquiring, enthusiastic approach to science, languages and all learning and teaching. There’s a shared sense of purpose and fun in whole school fundraising events for charities. Concern for others is at the heart of everything we do and is voiced in our school ethos: Care, Courtesy and Consideration. Girls develop a strong sense of social awareness, feel safe and supported in their relationships and always have someone to turn to.

Our examination results are consistently amongst the best in the country. From here girls can, and do, go on to achieve highly, whatever choices they make. They leave JAGS well-informed, active citizens, eager to make a difference.

Bursaries & Scholarships

Recognising exceptional academic promise, we award Academic Scholarships on the results of our 11+ Entrance Examination. Art and Music Scholarships and Sports Exhibitions are also awarded to candidates showing outstanding potential. Sixth Form Academic, Music and Art Scholarships are also awarded.

We want JAGS to continue to attract intellectually curious girls, regardless of their economic background, so we have our own means-tested awards – James Allen’s Bursaries – at 11+ and 16+. At present, bursaries are available for 11+ entry and Sixth Form admission and they offer up to full-fee assistance, including the cost of lunches, travel to school, trips and uniform.
