"The Benefits of an Aldenham Education"
My name is Andrew Williams and I am the Head of this wonderful co-educational day and boarding school.
Our all-round education provides challenge, enjoyment and opportunities for your child to flourish in the classroom and to benefit from a multitude of extra curricular activities. I want to take this opportunity to outline our values and the benefits we can offer your children.
Aldenham believes in preparing children for success, whether they are academically gifted, have strengths in other areas or both. We will encourage and support your child to aim for the highest standards in academic work, extracurricular activities and personal development. We believe in educating boys and girls together in small classes, alongside a single sex pastoral model to provide the best of both worlds.
We are delighted that this year 96% of our year 11 students achieved 5 or more good passes and 55% of all GCSE results from the top half of our cohort were graded at 7, 8 or 9. This is an excellent result in the first year of the more ‘robust’ style GCSEs. Overall at Aldenham a third of all GCSEs were graded 7+, which compares very favourably to the National figure of 21%. Results at A level showed an equally impressive outcome with a 98% pass rate. The top half of the cohort achieved 99% A* to C grades and overall 90% of students were offered a place at their 1st or 2nd choice university.
Aldenham continues to be at the forefront of teaching and learning; seamlessly blending the traditional values of a 420 year old institution with a modern approach to education. We believe in developing your child’s intellect alongside their individual characteristics and attributes, so that they leave us confident, articulate, ambitious and well-rounded young adults with their feet firmly set on the pathway to success in life.
Aldenham believes in being more than a School. We are a community which will work closely with you to inspire and support your child to identify their goals and exceed them. Our success in achieving our aims has been recognised in the last five independent inspections, all of which achieved the highest possible outcome. I hope that I will have the opportunity to welcome you to Aldenham to see the School for yourself and meet some of our wonderful pupils.
