Virtual Open Evening

Thank you for taking the time to look at the resources on our website.  We are so sorry that we cannot welcome you into our school at this time.  However, we hope the videos and information on this page give you a flavour of Alderbrook.

We are incredibly proud of our school and believe that it is a special place for young people to learn, develop and thrive.

Our values of Ambition, Bravery and Kindness, pervade all areas of our school and we are very excited that your child might be joining us in the years to come.

We hope that you enjoy looking through the various items and if we are able to invite you into school later this academic year we will of course make arrangements to do so.
