Alleyn's was delighted to receive its latest ISI inspection report this month, with an assessment of 'excellent' in both academic and pastoral areas.
The key findings of the report stated that: "The quality of the pupils' academic and other achievements is excellent" and "The quality of the pupils' personal development is excellent."
It also noted that: "The school successfully achieves its aim of nurturing holistic excellence for all through the development of curiosity, reflection, determination and a lifelong love of learning."
Jane Lunnon, Head of Alleyn's, said: "The judgement of fully compliant, and excellent in both areas: academic and pastoral, is a wonderful testament to our pupils and our staff and a reflection of the warmth, collegiality, and professionalism of our community, which has continued to shine bright even in the midst of a global pandemic.
"I am enormously proud of our school, our staff and, above all, of our remarkable pupils."
The inspection visit took place in November 2021, and comprised a team of nine inspectors who were on site for four days to meet with representatives from across the Alleyn's community, examine pupils' work, observe lessons and co-curricular sessions.
It was both a compliance inspection (assessing compliance with statutory government regulations) and a full educational quality inspection – assessing pupils' academic progress and personal development against a thorough set of criteria.
