Community & Partnership

Our School vision includes the aim of 'building positive local, national and international partnerships and providing opportunities for our pupils and staff to make a difference; whilst cherishing our community of pupils, parents, staff and alumni, and honouring our continuing commitment to Edward Alleyn's charitable foundation of 'God's Gift'. 

In support of this vision, the School and its pupils participate in a range of partnership, volunteering and outreach activities. This ranges from working with a large number of local schools, right through to global organisations such as Sweet Readers, in which Alleyn's is the pioneer UK partner.

Access to facilities, such as the theatre, swimming pool and sports grounds - is provided free of charge to local schools. During the past academic year, 16 local schools have used our facilities for a range of projects. This includes regular use of the School's playing fields to deliver PE lessons, sports fixtures, forest school activities and annual sports days, swimming lessons provided by our team of swimming teachers and numerous school plays and music productions being held in the theatre.

Free or reduced rate access to facilities is also available to charities, and to other local community organisations, and we continue to support an additional 20 community projects each year. For other groups, our facilities are available for commercial hire through Alleyn's School Enterprises Limited, with the profits from such arrangements being gifted back to the School to support its charitable activities.
