HEADTEACHER’S WELCOME & VISION

We aim to ensure that every young person achieves their potential by providing an education that challenges them intellectually and offers them a wide range of opportunities to develop and stretch their unique talents and interests. 

At Aldridge School, we believe that education is more than just grades. Grades are certainly the ‘passport’ that pupils need to move on to the next stage of their lives and we will do whatever it takes to ensure they are able to achieve their aspirations. However, the real art of education is to develop confident, resilient, and independent young people who are in possession of the ‘passport’ that grades provide.

MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP

Does your child have an aptitude for music? If so they could qualify for one of our Music Scholarships.

Each year twenty five places are awarded to the most gifted and aspiring students. We support our music students with exemplary teaching staff, who are supplemented by a group of passionate, high level instrumental tutors. This is an opportunity unmatched in state education. There will be a special meeting on Wednesday 21st September 2022 at 5.30pm in Whitman Hall for parents and students interested in applying for a Music Scholarship.
