Facts & Figures
In 2019/20, Alleyn's provided 109 means-tested bursaries in excess of £2.1m.
This is possible due to the Dulwich Estate income distribution each year, a grant from The Worshipful Company of Saddlers and other generous benefactors whose donations have enhanced the bursary provision at the School. We are committed to growing the number of means-tested bursaries for local children.
In the same academic year, over 690 hours of access to facilities were provided to both local schools and community groups involving over 1,200 people between August 2019 and March 2020. Our work to share facilities was restricted due to the outbreak of Covid 19 and the closure of many facilities from March onwards. However, throughout the period of lockdown, the School playing fields were opened daily to the local community as a safe space to exercise which proved incredibly popular with many families and Heber Primary School continued to use the fields when pupils returned to School in the Summer term leading their Assistant Headteacher to write to say “a huge thank you for use of your field over the last year, and especially during the last few months. Outdoor space is very limited at Heber and with the added pressure of bubbles of 15 children needing exclusive access to our playground at any one time, the use of the field has made a real difference to our children’s experience of the end of the year”.
We continue to enhance volunteering opportunities for our pupils. In addition to the Thursday afternoon volunteering scheme in Years 10-13 the Southwark Community Education Charity Saturday Maths Scheme for Year 11 mentors continues to thrive as does the Primary Partnership outreach programme for Year 12 students and the Castlebar Care Home project with pupils in Year 8 which were recently recognised by the prestigious Goldsmith Award.
