We are delighted with the performance figures for Year 11 who took their GCSE examinations in the summer.
The ‘Progress 8’ score measures the progress made by students in their secondary school across a broad range of 8 subjects including English, maths, 3 other EBacc subjects and 3 additional subjects.
Alleyne’s Academy achieved an impressive score of 0.27, an above average score, and puts us in the top 30% of all secondary schools in England.
Alleyne’s Academy is the 4th highest maintained school for progress in Staffordshire Local Authority.
Headteacher Karen Lockett is thrilled with this best ever figure for progress. Parents who have children at the academy or those choosing the academy for 2017 entry should be reassured that this really is a consistently good school, as judged by Ofsted, the Department for Education and the many comments we receive from the community.
