Sir John Cass's Foundation Primary School is a Church of England School in the City of London.[1] The last Ofsted report in 2013 classed it as "Outstanding".[2] The school was founded in 1709 in the churchyard of St Botolph's Aldgate.[3]


The school admits pupils from the age of 4 (Reception) to the 6th year. There is currently one class of approximately 30 students per year. The school has a small priority catchment area that includes all of the City of London plus a few streets to the east, as far as the A1202, Commercial Street, Leman Street and Royal Mint Street.

In the 2016 reception class, a bulge class will be established. For the first time, there will be two classes of 30 pupils starting in September 2016. This class will move through the school year on year. There will not be an additional class at all levels, just one bulge class.
