Impressively, nearly half (45%) of pupils were awarded eight or more A*s, with a significant 63% achieving all A*s and A grades.
Headmaster, Dr Gary Savage said: “This is a truly stunning set of results, our best ever, and an enormous tribute to the hard work of the pupils, the support of their teachers, and the excellence of the holistic education offered to boys and girls here at Alleyn’s. Most significantly, for every boy and girl there is a platform for future study and enjoyment of the learning they have happily begun at the School.”
Alleyn’s is one of the UK’s leading co-educational day schools with a proven pedigree for supporting its boys and girls on their way to outstanding attainment via a holistic educational and co-curricular pathway.
It has a strong reputation amongst educational observers, with regular praise coming in from the likes of The Good Schools Guide and Tatler Schools Guide. In 2013 the Independent Schools Inspectorate said of the community: “The pupils’ personal development is outstanding.”
Head of Middle School, Mel Joel said: “Our congratulations go out to all of our boys and girls. They bring energy and enthusiasm to their learning every single day, and their hard work and commitment has clearly paid off. We are so proud of the results that they have achieved, and wish them all the best as they contemplate their next steps into the exciting world of Upper School and A Levels.”
The school prides itself on its highly successful co-educational provision, and is often recognised for its ethos and warm community within which boys and girls learn and grow together.
Alleyn’s School celebrates A Level results as A* students equal School records
Students and staff are celebrating today as Sixth Formers matched School records with the equal highest percentage of A* grades since the award was introduced 7 years ago.
Of the 147 girls and boys who form this year’s Sixth Form cohort, an impressive 34% gained A* grades, 72% gained A*A, and overall 91% achieved A*AB.
Headmaster, Dr Gary Savage said: “I am obviously delighted for all our boys and girls, who have worked so hard to achieve these superb grades; and also for their inspiring, caring teachers, who have supported and guided them so diligently over many years. They leave us now with excellent examination results; but, more importantly, with a positive, generous outlook shaped by an enduring school ethos which gives equal value to the co-curriculum, to character and to friendship. We are immensely proud of them.”
The School has a long and proud record of high attainment. Every year leavers progress to some of the top universities and specialist schools of higher education in the UK and across the world.
Head of Upper School, Dr Rob Atkinson said: “Already, 91% of our boys and girls that applied to UK or overseas universities this year have accepted places and we are only awaiting news from a handful of others.”
“As a community we are so proud of our students and their academic and personal achievements. Today marks the start of an exciting journey as they move on to opportunities and adventures in the UK and beyond. We have every faith in their future success and wish them all the best”.
Alleyn’s was one of the first schools of its kind to go fully co-educational, back in 1976, and prides itself on its ethos and warm co-ed community within which girl and boys can learn and grow together in ways that successfully prepare them for a confident entry into a multi-gendered world.
