“Learning Support and Disability Policy
We are an academically selective day school for boys in the heart of the Square Mile, and there are four main entry points to the School:
10+, or Year 6, we call this Old Grammar
11+, or Year 7, our First Form
13+, or Year 9, our Third Form
16+, our Sixth Form
The School offers Academic, Music and Sports Scholarships, alongside a generous Bursary scheme.
We realise that applying to a selective senior school can have its challenges and we will do all we can to smooth the way for you.
You are most welcome to visit us to find out more about the School. We hold two Open Events in September each year and one Open Event in the Spring Term where you can see the School in action.
“When visiting City of London School, you cannot help but sense a buzz: boys and staff alike exude enthusiasm for the opportunities that an education here provides.
CLS is defined by its iconic location, a wonderfully diverse pupil body, outstanding pastoral care, academic excellence and an exciting co-curriculum. We are grounded and unpretentious, but ambitious nonetheless. And we understand that, for our pupils to make progress, they must be comfortable in their own skin.
Within this context, we are committed to preparing respectful, optimistic and inquisitive boys for the rapidly changing demands of the twenty-first century. We understand that this requires an understanding of the society of which they are part: they must be aware. It requires a broad range of skills, academic and otherwise: they must be ready. But, most of all, it requires empathy and understanding: they must be kind.
Equally important is our determination to make a City of London School education available to as many boys as possible, including through means-tested support and transformational bursaries. I am proud to be the Head of a school that has this as a central priority, and we are very grateful to all who help us to make this happen.
A website can provide a flavour of the School, but nothing substitutes for a visit. I look forward to welcoming you to one of our regular Open Events.
Alan Bird – Head”
