The Progress 8 score of +0.40 ranks Thomas Alleyne’s High School as the fourth highest performing school across Staffordshire and Derbyshire. Additionally, Thomas Alleyne’s also ranks within the top 10% schools nationally for progress in Maths.

In GCSEs this summer, Thomas Alleyne’s students made excellent progress across our broad and well-rounded curriculum. Many students gained amazing results with 11 students attaining at least four subjects at Grade 9.

Lorna demonstrated tremendous success, being awarded four Grade 9s, 2 A* and four Grade 8s. She is continuing her studies at Thomas Alleyne’s High School studying A levels in Business Studies, Design Technology and English Language.

Tom achieved exceptional results, being awarded six Grade 9s, 1 Grade A and 2 Grade 8s. He is continuing his studies at Thomas Alleyne’s High School studying A levels in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics.

A high proportion of students in the sixth form achieved exceptional A-level results, with 60% of students attaining 3 A-levels at grades A*-C and 31% attaining 3 grades at A*-B.  Perhaps most importantly the pass rate was 98%, which has once again enabled students to continue to secure top university places and Higher Apprenticeships.

Notable Post 16 academic achievements include Trudy, who secured A*A*A* and has taken a place to study History at Cambridge University and Lowri, who having achieved A*A*A*, has gone on to read Literature at Oxford University.

Academic success is important in our school, however along with it, we are passionate in providing opportunities to ensure students have the chance to develop skills in teamwork, independence, resilience and creativity. 

This summer, 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.

In May, the under 16 boys’ football team reached the Sentinel Shield final at Port Vale football ground. The girls’ badminton team were successful in reaching the national finals held at Milton Keynes National Badminton Centre. After competing against members of the national squad, they were placed seventh, nationally. A team of 32 swimmers from Thomas Alleyne's were victorious in the Moorlands swimming gala. This performance was matched by the athletics team who were overall winners of the Staffordshire athletics tournament.

Two of our students both came 2nd in their age groups in the Welsh National Cycling championships and one came 2nd in the British Mountain Biking Championships.

Year 9 Girls won a bronze medal in the County cross-country championships. In Athletics, we proudly cheered on one of our students as he qualified for the national championships at 100m and 200m, whilst another Alleyne’s student represented Staffordshire at Javelin. At a district level, we had students win the 800m, long jump and the 300m.

We are immensely proud of our sporting achievements. Below are further impressive sporting moments for Thomas Alleyne’s High School this academic year:

East Staffordshire team Trampoline champions- with one student as individual winner

U15 County Boys Rugby 7's bowl winners

Year 9 District Futsal winners

East Staffordshire Versatility Netball champions

East Staffordshire Cross Country Champion

Individual County Rugby debut

The Drama team presented a challenging and innovative interpretation of ‘The Woman in Black’ and the music students brought the year to a close with their wonderful and varied celebration of music.

In addition to this, over 100 students took the opportunity to complete their expeditions last year. A number of these students have now completed their Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh expeditions.

Experiences like this give students the opportunity to understand the world around them a little better and helps them foster confidence, tolerance, and perseverance.
