Thomas Alleyne: “Best ever results by miles”
STUDENTS and staff at The Thomas Alleyne School in Stevenage are celebrating record-breaking GCSE results.
“Our learners have achieved this school’s best ever results by miles,” said delighted headteacher Jonathan Block.
“Our school is full of very happy and very successful young people.
“The school’s initial pass rate of 71 per cent grades A* to C for its 160 Year 11 students is the highest overall success rate for the school since it became co-educational 21 years ago.
“Our young people this year have done superbly.
“We’ve been stuck at 57 per cent for the past two years, so these results are a massive leap forward for our learners and for our school.”
Forty-six per cent of students achieved at least five GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and maths.
