The Thomas Alleyne Academy

Co-educational Academy for 11-18 year olds

The Thomas Alleyne Academy is an 11-18 co-educational academy which is justly proud of its reputation as a happy, caring, and safe community where success is expected, achieved and celebrated. There has been education on our current site since 1558.  We converted to academy status in September 2013 and we are a proud member of the Hart Schools Trust, a multi-academy trust committed to supporting schools in our local area. 

In October 2019, Ofsted confirmed the academy continues to be ‘Good’ in all areas with ‘Outstanding’ leadership and management. We hope that you will want to come and see for yourself the exciting range of educational opportunities that we are able to offer our community.

“This is popular school with parents, carers and pupils alike. Pupils told us how much they value the support of staff.”
— OFSTED 2019


In years 7 to 9, students will study the full range of national curriculum subjects. We also focus on securing high standards of literacy and numeracy, enabling our students to be fully prepared for independent learning. As our students move through the school we strive to ensure they understand the relevance of their studies in relation to the huge range of careers available in the modern workplace. We use every available opportunity to develop our students’ character to ensure they are able to thrive in our modern world. 

At The Thomas Alleyne Academy our aim is to ensure your child can develop subject mastery during their five yeas with us. Each department has produced an overview which clarifies their understanding of subject mastery. 


English, Geography, Maths, History, Science, Computing, Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Media, Spanish, Personal Social Health Education, Food Technology, Religious Education, Product Design, and Resilience.


Thomas Alleyne students will be expected to complete regular homework assignments via the ‘Show My Homework’ portal. The homework policy is in here.

They can study the full range of academic GCSEs at Thomas Alleyne Academy and we can offer expert vocational learning through our close partnership with North Hertfordshire College.
