With a history that dates back to famous Elizabethan actor, Edward Alleyn, this esteemed school has grown into one of the top in the country. Alongside its academic prowess, Alleyn’s School not only achieves top grades at GCSE and A Level but, thanks to Headmaster Dr Gary Savage, there is also a focus on further academic enrichment. Importantly, Savage, who has previously worked at both Westminster School and Eton, wants his pupils develop a love of learning that will carry through the rest of their lives. Elsewhere, Alleyn’s is thriving in music and the arts, and has fantastic links with the National Youth Theatre. Alumni includes Jude Law and Florence Welch.
