Aldenham School, Founded 1597

Forward Thinking

One of the key tasks in any educational establishment is to ensure that the children are being effectively prepared for adult life. This may involve exposing pupils to events such as traditional formal dinners, with training in etiquette. However, in a world of fast moving technology, preparing pupils for the world of today is not enough. We need to prepare children to cope with a world which does not yet even exist. This is quite a challenge, but one which Aldenham relishes.

Aldenham embraces modern technology wherever it can enhance the educational environment and the learning or opportunities of the children. Click the video below to find out more about how we use technology.

Aldenham teaching staff regularly meet and train in methods which will ensure the best performance from the pupils. This does not just mean making sure that the teachers deliver the content effectively. It means that the pupils need to be taught how to learn.

In the  'breakfast clubs', teachers from across the Aldenham Foundation meet and share good practice to keep everybody sharp and prevent any staleness creeping in. There is always a clear focus on 'pupil learning', and the vibrant and dynamic approaches shared here are regularly tested and trialled in the classrooms to push for progress.
