A message from
our Headteacher

Alderbrook is an exciting, vibrant and caring place for young people to learn and develop academically, socially and personally. We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements, within as well as beyond the classroom and see our young people as great ambassadors for our school.

Perhaps our mission statement best sums up what we are all striving to achieve here: Our purpose is to provide a high quality, inclusive education which will support, challenge and inspire all children to fulfil their potential in every way and to become lifelong learners.

We aim to provide a high quality education where all students learn the essential knowledge and skills to enable academic success, future learning and employment. It is our intention to prepare all students to become responsible and engaged citizens, with the core aptitudes of ambition, bravery and kindness.

The Brightest of Futures

One of our aims is to nurture your child so that they take with them the qualifications, skills, attributes and compassion necessary to lead a fulfilling life.  In addition, in our digital age, they need the knowledge, capabilities and foresight to succeed in occupations, which are yet to be created.

Finally, we are committed that the Alderbrook learning experience moves with the times whilst maintaining the traditions of good manners, tolerance and respect for others.  We look forward to working with you as parents and carers to create the best possible life chances for your child.

Academic Excellence, Stimulating Curiosity, Unlocking Potential

Our curriculum engages, enthuses and sparks curiosity. Our GCSE and Technical qualifications prepare students for the competitive world as they develop academically and stimulate personal confidence and resilience. We ensure that our broad and balanced curriculum inspires and engages our students but also offers challenge, support and development for every individual.
