Student life at Alleyn's is an exciting, varied and challenging experience. There is only one common characteristic to an Alleyn's pupil and that is a willingness to take part. Alleyn’s aims to provide a broad academic education, both for its own sake and to meet the demands of universities and other institutions of higher education. At the same time we also seek to nurture personal qualities of initiative, independence and leadership, and attach great importance to the development of other interests and skills, whether cultural, sporting, adventurous – or a combination of all three. We believe that academic confidence and achievement best flourish in this holistic, busy context.
We are therefore very gratified by the report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate on their recent full inspection of Alleyn’s (January 2013) in which our School is rated “Excellent” (the top possible ISI grade). This endorsement of what we are doing provides a wonderfully positive platform from which to move forwards across the key themes of Dr Savage's headship: teaching and learning, academic enrichment, widening horizons, and further enhancing the School’s facilities.
The recent School Inspection concluded: the programme of co-curricular activities is outstanding. The school offers an exceptionally wide and diverse selection of clubs, societies and activities. Collectively, these significantly enhance pupils’ educational and intellectual development, and provide opportunities for leadership, personal development and challenge. The programme is open to all, irrespective of ability, and pupils are actively encouraged to get involved.
