12th August 2021 — Pupils at Alleyn’s in south-east London are celebrating their GCSE results after what has been an incredibly uncertain two years for them.
Their purpose and perseverance during a turbulent time has paid off, resulting in fantastic attainment for boys and girls alike, as befits one of the UK’s leading co-educational day schools.
Mrs Jane Lunnon, Head of Alleyn’s, said: “I am delighted for our Year 11 pupils, who have achieved impressive results that are incredibly well-deserved. Their GCSE journey has been unlike any other, but they have remained enthusiastic, energetic and determined despite the many uncertainties along their route. It is this enterprising spirit that marks them out as Alleyn’s learners and which has allowed them to evidence, through the rigour of so many assessments, just how brilliant they are. I am so thankful, too, for our wonderful staff body who have worked incredibly hard throughout the pandemic to ensure that our boys and girls remain inspired, supported and engaged.”
Alleyn’s has a long-held tradition of both academic and co-curricular success, so it comes as no surprise that pupils have successfully studied for their GCSEs alongside exciting endeavours such as winning the Trinity College London Talent Class of 2020, being shortlisted for the Triumph Design Awards, and representing the UK in Mathematics Olympiads.
Mrs Mel Joel, Head of Middle School at Alleyn’s, said: “This is a a wonderful outcome for our boys and girls, and I am so proud of every one of them. They have worked so hard and demonstrated impressive resilience over the past months and throughout the pandemic. It is always a delight to see them receive the results they deserve at GCSE, and I am excited to watch their next steps as they step into Upper School and continue to flourish as individuals.”
