In the summer of 2019, 80% of GCSEs were graded 4-9, with 78% of pupils achieving a good pass in English and Maths. Overall, 20% of all GCSEs were graded A or A*. Progress 8 data also places the Royal Alexandra and Albert School in the top 8% of schools for value added, with a score of +0.43. The combination of strong academic results and outstanding pastoral care saw the Royal Alexandra and Albert School became the most sought-after secondary school in Surrey, according to official Department of Education data. The School's last Ofsted boarding inspection in March 2018 deemed it to be an 'Outstanding' boarding school. Ofsted's report mentioned that 'the school provides a secure environment in which children and young people flourish, achieve academically, stretch their abilities and develop social skills' and that 'staff have been remarkably successful in improving the life experience of children and young people, and in expanding their future life chances'.
