Boys and girls at leading co-educational school Alleyn’s have achieved outstanding A level results in 2018, continuing the School’s tradition of exceptional attainment.
Year 13 students and staff are delighted with the results, which include these headlines:
Alleyn’s is one of the UK’s best regarded co-educational day schools, and accordingly, both boys and girls performed exceptionally well, with the vast majority progressing to their first-choice university courses. Even as public examinations become more challenging, the 2018 results are amongst the highest ever posted by the School and include its second-highest ever set of A* grades.
Headmaster Dr Gary Savage said: “Our boys and girls have excelled themselves yet again, and everyone at School is immensely proud of all they have achieved. This is a wonderful set of results not only for our students and their parents, but also for our entire School community who all work so hard to inspire and support the girls and boys to deliver these fantastic outcomes. Alleyn’s is one of the very best co-educational schools in the UK, and I truly believe it is our holistic approach and co-educational ethos that ensures our Leavers make their way in the world as high-achieving, but also kind and well-balanced, young people.”
Head of Upper School, Dr Rob Atkinson said: “We congratulate all of our boys and girls on their achievements which reflect their hard work over the past few months. We know that today marks the beginning of an exciting journey; already 94% of our 2018 Leavers have accepted places at UK and overseas universities or on other specialist courses. Whilst they will always remain much valued members of the Alleyn’s community, we wish them all the best for their future adventures.”
Alleyn’s, which will celebrate Alleyn’s 400(the 400th anniversary of Edward Alleyn’s College of God’s Gift) in 2019, was one of the first schools of its kind to become fully co-educational back in 1976. The School has a long history of excellence and prides itself on its caring community and ethos within which boys and girls learn, grow and succeed together.
Educational observers hold Alleyn’s in high regard for its extensive enrichment and co-curricular provision as well as its academic calibre. Pupils are also known to benefit from initiatives such as the Alleyn’s Learners’Programme which encourages a love of learning and an understanding of personal learning styles.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate says of the community: “The pupils’ personal development is outstanding.”
