Last Updated on : 2nd September 2016

With 67% of all grades being A* and 63% of the pupils achieving all A* and A grades

Just a week after their Sixth Form peers matched school records on A Level results day, Year 11 pupils at Alleyn’s School are also jumping for joy at posting their very own record-breaking set of GCSE grades.

The School is celebrating its best ever GCSE results, as a stunning 67% of the grades awarded to the 143 boys and girls who made up the Year 11 cohort were A*. 92% of all the grades were A*A, and overall a fantastic 99% of the grades were A*-B.


Impressively, nearly half (45%) of pupils were awarded eight or more A*s, with a significant 63% achieving all A* and A grades.

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, based in Dulwich in south London, 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 the warm community within which boys and girls learn and grow together.
