  • Remembrance Day 2020 – please donate

    Remembrance events will be very different this year. Please see the letter for details.

    In particular, we will not be selling poppies in school this year, but would like to encourage all members of the school community and their families to donate to the Poppy Appeal and the wearing of a poppy is encouraged as a show of support to the Armed Forces community. A Just Giving page has been set up specifically for this purpose which allows Gift Aid to increase gifts further where possible.

  • Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal & Remembrance Day

    Remembrance Sunday provides an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the sacrifices made by so many people in the service of their country. As Headteacher, I regard it as a privilege to be able to represent our school community at the annual parade in Aldridge. I believe that it is important that we take time to remember, with thanks, the service and sacrifice of those who have suffered in conflicts around the globe.

  • Classical Ambassadors at Aldridge!

    The History department is proud to announce that a record 6 Y12/13 students have successfully been awarded the position of Student Ambassador for the prestigious Lytham St Anne’s Classical Association.

  • A Unique experience with Archaeology at Oxford University!

    The History dept was incredibly proud of two of its Y13s who applied for and were offered places on Oxford University’s flagship summer school programme, Uniq.

  • Acting Accolade

    We are delighted to report that an Aldridge student has been put up for nomination as Best Child Actor Award at the Birmingham Film Festival which was hosted by Robert Downey Jnr last year and also Toppy up for Best Local Film. Keeping everything crossed!

  • PSHCE Promise

    On Friday 2 October 2020, 862S were completing their week of PSHCE lessons on “What influences you?” Their final task for the week was to write an inspirational speech to motivate their peers about their future dreams and ambitions.

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Aldridge School. We are a comprehensive school of over 1500 students situated near the centre of Aldridge village. We believe that it is our responsibility to work to meet the needs of every individual student, challenging them to achieve their best, supporting them to become responsible young adults and preparing them for their next steps into the world of work or further education. I am very proud and excited to be the Headteacher of Aldridge School.

Year 8 & 9 move to remote learning for the rest of this week

The number of teaching staff unavailable to work in school this week has increased to the point where we are unable to supervise all students in school for the next three days. This is mostly due to the requirement on some staff to self-isolate and should not, therefore, extend beyond the half term break (including a number of our staff have been identified as close contacts of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 outside of our school community).
