2021 GCSE Results: Excellence and Enterprise in Extraordinary Times
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 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.”
2021 A levels: Celebrating Resilience and Results
Students at co-educational Alleyn’s in London are celebrating their A level results after demonstrating extraordinary resilience throughout another unique academic year.
Staff were delighted to welcome students back on site to receive their results in person, and to congratulate the girls and boys on the fortitude and commitment they have exemplified through turbulent times.
Head of Alleyn’s, Mrs Jane Lunnon said: “I am so very proud of all our boys and girls, who have demonstrated such steadfastness in the face of sustained uncertainty. Their achievements are fantastic, fitting and fully deserved, and we celebrate the determination with which they have tackled their assessments. Behind the topsy-turvy circumstances, their hard work was constant, and it is their tenacity, ultimately, that has allowed them to evidence, so robustly, exactly what they are capable of. We congratulate them all and thank the staff who worked so hard throughout last year, to ensure that their learning was not unduly compromised by the pandemic.”
The positive results for the boys and girls at Alleyn’s continue a tradition of outstanding academic success, borne out of the School's enterprising ethos alongside its ambition and agility in adapting to exceptional circumstances.
Student Eden Cheng is one such example of the Alleyn's spirit; securing A*, A*, A and B grades after studying by turns in classrooms, on planes and at pool sides in order to balance the international diving career that saw her secure a silver medal at the 2021 European Diving Championships and compete at the Tokyo Olympics.
Student Louis Partridge has likewise enjoyed the flexibility that the School has been able to offer, with the actor combining his A level studies with time on set filming for exciting roles such as the Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious in the upcoming Danny Boyle series.
Dr Rob Atkinson, Head of Upper School said: “We are delighted for all our students, and grateful to the wider staff body and parents that provided such dedicated support throughout their Alleyn’s journey. The vast majority now progress on to their first-choice university and specialist courses in the UK and overseas. We are thrilled to wish them well in their next steps, and equally excited to meet them again as Alleyn’s alumni in future years.”
