Alleyn’s students showcase excellence in STEM, humanities, languages and arts in resounding all-round A level success

Last Updated on : 17th August 2023

Head Jane Lunnon welcomed excellent results from this year’s A Level students at the leading South London-based co-ed independent school. 

Students at Alleyn’s celebrated another excellent year academically, with results demonstrating a diverse and well-rounded subject mix across STEM subjects, languages, humanities and the arts.

  • 80% met their first choice of university and 86% met either their first or insurance choice.
  • 40% of exams taken were awarded an A* grade, 77% were awarded an A* or A, and 93% were awarded A*, A or B.
  • 6 students gained four A*s, 29 received 3 A*s, and 95 students out of 156 gained at least 3 A*s or A grade.
  • All our 13 Year 13 bursary students attained ABB or higher, with 2 receiving three A stars.

Head, Mrs Jane Lunnon said: ‘I am incredibly proud and awed by the achievements, spirit and creativity of our Year 13s. Their immense character and passion is reflected in excellent results across STEM, languages, the arts and humanities, with an impressive number of students receiving A* or A in a mix of subjects across those disciplines, and with two individual students being awarded a national commendation for their art portfolios alongside first class results in other subjects. The strong performance of our bursary students is also a brilliant reflection of their important role in our school community, and we look forward to continuing to expand our bursary programme in the years to come. 

‘This year group has shone in their ability to marry academic success with excellence and passion beyond the classroom on the sport field, the stage and out in our local community. Their achievements are a fitting testament to their resilience and hard work following the challenges of the Covid years, and bely the fact that these are the first public qualifications they have sat in exam conditions.’

Head of Upper School, Corisande Low said, ‘Alongside achieving these excellent results, these talented students have led the school with compassion and conviction. As strong role models embodying the Alleyn’s values of Respect, Opportunity, Courage, Curiosity and Kindness, they have guided younger students in all areas of school life, from the pastoral mentorship of the house system, through to a vast array of co-curricular clubs and activities.’ 

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.
