Alleyn’s Pupils Shine on GCSE Results Day

Last Updated on : 31st August 2022

Boys and girls at leading co-educational independent school Alleyn’s in south-east London celebrate outstanding GCSE results with over 56% at top grade 9.

Pupils and staff at Alleyn’s in south-east London are heralding a bumper set of GCSE results, on the back of the school’s exceptional A level results last week, with more than 30% of pupils gaining 10 or more GCSEs at grades 9 and 8. And, as befits one of the top co-educational schools in the country, boys and girls both performed admirably.

The headlines were:

– 56% of grades were top grade 9
– 80% of grades were grades 9 and 8
– 93% of grades were grades 9-7
– 27 pupils gained 10 or more grade 9s
– 59 pupils gained 10 or more grade 9 and 8s

Alleyn’s has long been known for the extensive co-curricular programme that runs alongside its academic prowess. As such, pupils have achieved fantastic outcomes whilst also undertaking impressive pursuits outside of the classroom.

Charlotte L, a top-flight fencer, gained 9 grade 9s whilst also participating in the 2022 European and World Championships and the Commonwealth Games, and receiving the 2022 Middle School prize for Art. Footballer Luc R also performed brilliantly at GCSE, whilst receiving a signed scholar deal with Fulham FC. Musicians Joseph W, Laurence F and Orla W all gained a swathe of grade 9s alongside pursuits such as receiving the Alleyn’s Harland Endeavour prize, performing in Alleyn’s headline concerts at Blackheath Halls and Southwark Cathedral, playing with the National Youth Orchestra and winning honours in the Trinity Talent Class awards.

Head of Alleyn’s Jane Lunnon said: “This is such a fantastic set of results after a challenging GCSE journey that included lockdowns and uncertainly throughout. I am so pleased for our Year 11 students, who have richly demonstrated their ability to face the vicissitudes of the pandemic and still come out smiling. In the first public examinations in 2 years and amidst a difficult national picture, they have shown courage, determination and optimism and really have emerged with the results they deserve. More than that, they have been a complete delight to work with, inspiring us all both in and beyond the classroom. I am so very proud of them and their fantastic teachers, and I look forward to supporting them further with the adventures of A level and beyond.”

Head of Alleyn’s Middle School (Years 9-11), Mel Joel, said: “I’m absolutely delighted for this cohort and the results they have achieved after a more challenging than usual GCSE journey. Their courage and steadfastness have absolutely borne fruit, and I am really looking forward to seeing them flourish as they continue their Alleyn’s journey as part of the Upper School. “

The results continue a long tradition of academic success at Alleyn’s, which prides itself on a holistic, progressive approach to education. Recent ISI inspection reports, published in early 2022, judged both Alleyn’s Senior and Junior Schools to be excellent in both academic and pastoral categories.
