Alleyn’s says this year’s GCSE results ‘match some of the best in recent years’. 

Students received their results via email, and were not on site today.

In a statement sent to the News, interim headmaster Andy Skinnard said: “We are so pleased for all of our Year 11 cohort, who, like their Year Thirteen counterparts, have experienced an extremely anxious few months as they adapted first to life in lockdown, and then to the various government announcements around public examinations and the consequent results process. 

“We hope that today provides welcome reassurance to them and marks the happy beginning of an exciting next stage to their career at Alleyn’s. 

“Their excellent results are, of course, a fitting outcome of their commitment and enthusiasm for learning throughout their entire time at Alleyn’s. 

“We are incredibly impressed by the resilience they have shown in recent months, and for all the energy they have brought to school life throughout lockdown and indeed before. 

“Today I am delighted to see these wonderful young people achieve grades they so fully deserve, and look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in our Upper School when School restarts in September. 

“Of course, we are still keenly aware that this has been an extremely trying period for our Year Thirteen students, who we remain committed to helping as they work through the implications of recent decisions.”

Mel Joel, the head of Alleyn’s Middle School, said: “Our boys and girls can feel incredibly proud of their results today, and reassured that the outcomes are based on a fair, considered and extensive evaluation process. 

“I hope that their achievements are a cause for celebration and satisfaction for both them and their families. 

“Our thanks go out to every one of them for their fortitude, and of course we are grateful to our wonderful staff for their tireless efforts to support, inspire and lead the school community throughout this frustrating time. 

“We look forward to welcoming both pupils and staff back on site in September, so we can continue our exciting learning journeys, together and in person.”
