Olympic diver Eden Cheng has achieved top A Level results after studying while competing around the world.
The athlete, who attended Alleyn’s in Dulwich, received A*, A*, A and B grades after studying in classrooms, on planes and at pool sides while pursuing her international diving career.
Eden won a silver medal at the 2021 European Diving Championships and competed at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
Actor Louis Partridge, who starred in Enola Holmes alongside Milly Bobby-Brown, also picked up his results from the school today.
Head of Alleyn’s, Mrs Jane Lunnon said: “I am so very proud of all our boys and girls, who have demonstrated such steadfastness in the face of sustained uncertainty.
“Their achievements are fantastic, fitting and fully deserved, and we celebrate the determination with which they have tackled their assessments.
“Behind the topsy-turvy circumstances, their hard work was constant, and it is their tenacity, ultimately, that has allowed them to evidence, so robustly, exactly what they are capable of. We congratulate them all and thank the staff who worked so hard throughout last year, to ensure that their learning was not unduly compromised by the pandemic.”
Dr Rob Atkinson, Head of Upper School said: “We are delighted for all our students, and grateful to the wider staff body and parents that provided such dedicated support throughout their Alleyn’s journey.
“The vast majority now progress on to their first-choice university and specialist courses in the UK and overseas. We are thrilled to wish them well in their next steps, and equally excited to meet them again as Alleyn’s alumni in future years.”
