Year 9 Information Event


2020 continues to be a strange year !

We are still unable to invite you into our school and so instead, we invite you to watch this 16 minute video from four of our members of staff that work closely with Alderbrook’s year 9 students.

  • Mr McLoughlin – Assistant Headteacher for Year 9 (00:00 – 02:13)
  • Mrs Desjarlais – Head of Year 9 (02:13 – 06:09)
  • Mrs Reeve – Teaching and Learning Co-ordinator (06:09 – 14:38)
  • Mrs Wedgbury – Pastoral Manager for Year 9 (14:38 – 16:34)

We hope that you find it informative and useful.

Please scroll down in order to access the websites mentioned in the video.

Thank you for your continuing support.
