About St Paul's Juniors
Head: Maxine Shaw
St Paul’s Juniors attracts bright, enthusiastic boys who are inquisitive and eager to learn. Boys may join at 7+, 8+ and 11+. St Paul’s Juniors shares facilities and expertise with the senior part of the school, and offers a secure and nurturing environment in which to develop and grow.
St Paul’s pupils are talented, possess intellectual curiosity and have many interests outside the classroom. They have energy and zest. We want any academically able boy to come to St Paul’s Juniors on merit, regardless of family financial circumstances. Free and subsidised places are available every year for which the parent of any successful candidate may apply.
Pupils joining the school in Years 3 and 4 have their own dedicated classrooms where the majority of their lessons are taught by form tutors. Two classroom assistants are available to support the youngest age groups.
Pupils visit dedicated teaching spaces for science, sport and the arts, using the superb on-site facilities such as the science labs, music school, Store 81 (the drama studio), sports hall, swimming pool and dojo.
At the start of Year 5, lessons move to a senior school model with pupils benefiting from teaching by subject specialists in all areas of the curriculum.
Pupils at St Paul’s Juniors hold a place at the senior school and transfer at the end of Year 8, subject to good work and conduct.
