Success celebrations for Alleynes Academy

Stone’s Alleyne’s Academy is in the top four of local maintained secondary schools for Progress.

Sixteen year old students at Alleyne’s Academy in Stone made outstanding progress(2018 Department for Education School Performance Tables). Students obtained a Progress score of +0.4 which means they attained almost half a grade better than similar students nationally in eight of the subjects passed in 2018. This is the fourth year in succession that progress for Year 11 students has been positive.

This progress score places Alleyne’s in the top four maintained secondary schools out of 90 in all of Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Cheshire East and in the top 20% of all state schools (including selective schools) nationally (Percentile Rank 18 – FFT Aspire). Sixth form students obtained an average grade B in their A levels (2018 National C+) and an average grade distinction in their Applied General (BTEC) subjects (2018
National Merit+).

Post 16 performance tables will be released in January, but provisional figures suggest Year 13 students attained the second highest points score in A levels in Staffordshire with above average progress scores in A levels and Applied General subjects. Destinations of students included Physics at Oxford University, Medicine at Sheffield,
places at Russell Group universities and apprenticeships with Rolls Royce. In fact 32% of students at Alleyne’s Academy secured a place at a Russell Group university compared to the Staffordshire average of 10%.

Headteacher, Karen Lockett, is delighted with these results. She says: “It confirms Ofsted judgements that this is a ‘Good’ school. Students are taught by specialist staff in a school where the behaviour is exceptional and lessons support personal development and independent thinking. Staff and students work in specialist rooms and the school is currently being extended to accommodate the rising numbers of students choosing to study here. Parents and potential Year 9 and Sixth Form students for September 2019 are invited to look at our website for further information and are also welcome to arrange a visit to the school by contacting Ms. Lockett, Headteacher, or Mr. Tweats, Deputy Head Teacher.”
