City of London School for Girls and City of London School to open a joint junior school from September 2022

City of London School for Girls, which has run a highly successful prep school for girls aged 7 – 11 in the past, will be opening a junior school for girls and boys aged between 7 and 11 in September 2022. Boys were previously only able to join City of London School at 10+ or 11+.

While both senior schools will remain single-sex, the new junior school will build on the growing collaborations and partnerships between both existing schools, as well as with the City of London Family of Schools.

The junior school will be based in London’s historic legal quarter, Gray’s Inn, within easy walking distance of both senior schools. Rachel Thompson, who has successfully led CLSG’s Prep Department over the last four years, will be the first Head of the junior school.

You can find more information by visiting the school’s new website, The junior school will be holding its first in-person open events on the 15th and 20th September 2021. These events will only be open to the parents of students applying this coming autumn 2021 for the September 2022 intake. Applications will close on 27 October 2021 and first round assessments will be held on December 4th / 5th.

City Junior School will be an attractive, new co-educational option at 7+ in addition to Latymer Prep and Highgate School.
