Welcome to City of London School

City of London School is one of London's leading academic day schools, with over 950 boys between the ages of 10 and 18. We occupy an iconic position in the vibrant heart of the City of London, in the shadow of the dome of St Paul's Cathedral and across the river from the Tate Modern. Our buildings are purpose-built and accommodate a modern, forward-looking School. We have a proud tradition of academic excellence and educational innovation that dates back to the fifteenth century.

Entry points are at 10+, 11+, 13+ and 16+. We belong to the City of London Family of School, and enjoy strong links with our sister school, City of London School for Girls, which adds significantly to our strength as a selective, independent school.
