Welcome back to Life at Aldenham
It has been a genuine pleasure for us to be able to see all the pupils back in School. For the whole of last term the School was a quiet, calm, but remarkably subdued place, but from the start of term the buzz and energy of the School has returned and it is great to see.
Congratulations to new Head Girl Zoe Freedman and Head Boy Oliver Cowles
Our pupils have adapted well to the new routines that we have had to put in place to keep them and our staff safe, and it has been especially good to see our newest Year 7 pupils getting the spirit of Aldenham life very quickly.
Training for our new Praes
One major change in the life of the School has been the official beginning of another Junior House, Woodrow’s for half of the children in Year 7 and Year 8. Even though lockdown has caused a short delay on the planned completion of the new Prep School building, they will still be able to look forward to moving into the Woodrow’s House building early in 2021.
Our Activities programme is up and running very successfully and all pupils have been actively engaged in the games programme. Chapel services are again taking place starting with Year 7 which has been followed by year group assemblies in Chapel.
Slowly but surely everyone is settling into the new normal of school routines.
