Founded in 1597, Aldenham is one of the oldest schools in the world, delivering our students with high-quality education steeped in timeless tradition with a contemporary approach to learning, state-of-the-art facilities and smart, modernised boarding accommodation.

Thanks to our all-round approach to learning, our holistic teaching goes beyond what is learning in the classroom, providing opportunities for all students to flourish as individuals. We also embrace modern technology to prepare children for the world beyond school.

From drama to music, debating to Mandarin and football to archery, climbing to sailing, our excellent facilities and structured timetable offer a range of extracurricular activities to stimulate and challenge or students.

Under 30 Minutes to Central London!

Our 120 acres of land and excellent boarding facilities provide plenty of opportunity for weekend activities. However, unlike some boarding schools, Aldenham does not have Saturday School, although sports fixtures are played at the weekend, for those in teams.

For other full boarders there is a combination of downtime relaxing with friends, and some trips such as the cinema, bowling, Top Golf, or karting. The programme is very flexible and informal.

There are plenty of chances to visit London's attractions which are on our doorstep! More significant trips are arranged to other major UK cities including Cambridge and Edinburgh.

Some boarders take advantage of visiting the homes of their new British friends at the weekend, as many live locally. This gives the opportunity for a real taste of home life in England which is a real advantage of boarding at Aldenham.
