Alleyn's School Sports
As the new academic year kicks off, pupils at co-educational Alleyn’s School in Dulwich, southeast London are looking forward to a bumper year of sporting fun and competition.
There is certainly a lot to live up to. Although the School has a long-established record of sporting success, the last few terms have been particularly notable for Alleyn’s teams and individuals.
Boys and girls rounded off the spring and summer terms with a sweep of titles in water polo and cricket, amongst other sporting disciplines.
Alleyn’s, whose sporting mantra is Inclusion; progression; excellence, has a developmental philosophy that aims to inspire all pupils to enjoy sport and games, regardless of their starting point.
A healthy number of Alleyn’s pupils participate successfully at regional, national and international level in sports including football, athletics, water polo, fives, netball, fencing and sailing. One pupil notably achieved a gold medal in diving at the European Championships over the summer.
As a progressive school, Alleyn's regularly fields successful mixed-gender sporting squads. Certainly, boys and girls have access to extensive facilities to help bring out their sporting best, with the School enjoying the use of floodlit all-weather pitches, cricket pitches and pavilion, tennis, basketball, netball and hockey courts, and a 25 metre swimming pool with an Olympic timing system.
Alleyn's offers means-tested financial assistance and a range of scholarships, including a Sports Scholarship at 11+ and 13+.
