Dame Alice Owen’s School is a mixed, partially selective secondary school with over 1,440 registered pupils and a vibrant and highly successful sixth form. Our school was founded 400 years ago by Dame Alice Owen, a remarkable philanthropist with an unusually modern vision for education. She established the first school in Islington and as demand outstripped space, it moved to its current setting in the Hertfordshire countryside. Because of its roots and its close and important relationship with the Worshipful Company of Brewers, there are 20 places each year for 11-year-old students from Islington. It also offers 65 places to the highest scoring applicants who sit the entrance exam each year and a further 10 places for the most talented or able musicians who apply for a place in Year 7. The remainder of the places in an annual cohort of 200 go to siblings, local pupils on the basis of proximity to the school and to those with priority need.

It is this combination of students and its truly outstanding record of achievement and added value that makes our school such a special place. It is oversubscribed by 5 applicants per place every year. Our dedicated staff, parents’ association, governing body and school (staff and student) leaders constantly appraise and re-appraise the various aspects of school life, learning and achievement so we are never complacent. Our school faces the usual challenges of all educational establishments in the public sector, and ensuring that their impact is felt least by the students is a key objective.

We were delighted to be recognised as The Sunday Times Regional School of the Decade in November 2020 and the country’s highest ranking non-fully selective state school of the year in 2021. Securing a place at Owen’s has been described as “winning the lottery” in the Good School Guide and “the golden ticket” in Tatler. Our school benefits from some of the most able students in the country. Many of our school leavers from Year 13 have offers from top universities to choose from, including on average 20 places at Oxbridge each year.

Our Foundress left a number of fields in the then village of Islington to the care of the Worshipful Company of Brewers which now generate over one million pounds of additional income for the school annually, to support the school and especially the Sports Department. This creates a very special ethos and fosters the very positive staff working environment. The students and staff benefit from a number of traditions including Beer Money, staff awards and Visitation.
