James Allen’s Girls’ School

At JAGS you will find a happy, diverse and dynamic community, rooted in academic excellence and fully committed to the breadth of a holistic education both in and out of the classroom.

Located in Zone 2 in leafy South London, JAGS surprises with its green and spacious site; the extensive grounds and facilities include 22 acres of playing fields, a state-of-the-art music centre, a purpose-built theatre, an ozone-filtered swimming pool and so much more.

It is our absolute aim for JAGS to continue to attract intellectually curious girls, regardless of their economic background and in order to ensure these opportunities, we have our own means-tested bursary scheme for all year groups from 11+ entry upwards. Bursaries cover well over 80% of all fees for the 149 pupils whose families currently receive them.

Every year JAGS public exam results place them in the very top echelon of girls’ schools in the UK and our academic curriculum is designed encourage a genuine love of life-long learning in all pupils. This goes far beyond exams and results, inspiring pupils to delve beyond specifications and to always remain curious about the world around them. JAGS dynamic curriculum is constantly reviewed by passionate teaching staff, who are experts in their fields, to ensure that it remains contemporary, preparing pupils for an ever-changing educational, digital and social future.

Pastoral care is at the very heart of JAGS. The school is exceptionally proud of the strong, contemporary pastoral systems they have in place, and the care that each member of staff takes to ensure that they know each girl as an individual. These ingredients are key to this happy and inclusive community, providing a nurturing environment in which all pupils can thrive.

JAGS pupils are curious about the world around them and they become debaters, entrepreneurs, athletes, environmentalists, bookworms, artists and inventors, and each individual journey is fuelled by a spark of academic excitement. This is a school that offers a grounded, forward-thinking, and contemporary education for our students.
