They are testament to the students’ hard work, the support of their families and strong teaching and support from staff at Thomas Alleyne’s. Our outgoing Year 13 group have not only excelled academically they have also been superb role models to other students throughout their time at Thomas Alleyne’s.

Academic success is important in our school, however along with it we are passionate in providing opportunities to ensure students have chance to develop skills in teamwork, independence, resilience and creativity. Over 70 community-minded Year 11 students took part in the National Citizenship project, spending time in a local University, raising significant amounts for charity and completing a range of outdoor activities. Experiences like this give our students the opportunity to understand the world around them a little better and also helps them foster confidence, tolerance and perseverance.

Alison Trenery chair of governors said, "I am delighted to see another excellent set of results from Thomas Alleyne’s Sixth Formers, and such an impressive performance in both vocational and academic subjects. These results, together with the tremendous level of extra activities and community engagement undertaken by these Sixth Formers, should open doors into interesting and rewarding careers.  They are a credit to the school, their families and the local community."

Over the summer we have been focusing on further developing the environment in school and are pleased to have new lighting and computer infrastructure installed.

On the 4th October we welcome prospective parents/carers to our annual open evening for Year 9 and on the 11th October for Year 12. In addition to the open evening we will be holding school tours where parents can join our senior team during the school day.
