St Aubyn's School

St. Aubyn’s School is a co-educational independent school for 530 children aged 3 to 13.

About the school

Situated in beautiful surroundings of Woodford Green and Epping Forest and easily accessible from the main thoroughfares of London, St. Aubyn’s is set in eight acres of grounds. It is self-contained and well-resourced, offering small classes and high levels of teaching.

The focus is on the education, welfare and personal development of each child. Strong relationships are at the core of this: relationships among pupils and between pupils and staff, all backed up by a partnership with parents.

A Christian foundation, the School is inclusive of all faiths and backgrounds. Children respect each other’s individuality and achievements. The school motto from 1884 still reflects the approach to teaching and to learning today: Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter; Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.

Admissions Process

The main points of entry to the school are the EYFS (Nursery/Reception) and at ages 7+ (Year 3) and 11+ (Year 7), with entry at other ages dependent upon vacancies occurring.


Entry to Nursery is non-selective by date of registration, therefore registrations should be made as soon as possible as waiting lists are always in excess of the places available. All prospective parents are expected to visit the School either before or after registration. This does not include Open Day. Offers will not be made unless parents have visited the School and met the Head. 


A small number of places are available in Reception every year. When a vacancy arises, registered applicants are invited to an informal age-appropriate assessment which is designed to identify applicants who will be able to benefit fully from the balanced and well-rounded curriculum.

Places are also available in Year 3 and Year 7.
