St John Cass’s Foundation School in St James’s Passage is the only state primary school in the City; it is judged “outstanding” by the government’s education watchdog Ofsted. All the other schools in the City are private.

At primary school level there is either St Paul’s Cathedral School (co-ed, ages four to 13), the cathedral choir school or Charterhouse Square School (co-ed, ages three to 11) in Charterhouse Square.

There are two high-achieving City of London schools: one for girls (ages, seven to 18) in St Giles Terrace in the Barbican and one for boys (ages 10 to 18) in Queen Victoria Street. The City of London sponsors three state academies beyond its boundaries: in Homerton Road in Hackney, in Prebend Street in Islington and Lynton Road in Bermondsey.

The City of London also supports the Guildhall School of Music and Drama a leading performing arts university that also trains under-18 musicians through Junior Guildhall and the Centre of Young Musicians.
