WELCOME TO ALDRIDGE SCHOOL - A SCIENCE COLLEGE
Welcome to Aldridge School — A Science College. Thank you forconsidering us for your next step in education. We are here to make adifference to children’s lives, and we are immensely proud of what wehave achieved for our students, as well as being excited for the future.We leave no child behind, nor do we hold anyone back. We believe inchallenging and inspiring our students to set them on the path tosuccess. We support our strong academic curriculum with anoutstanding extra-curricular programme, which gives everyone the chance to shine, regardless of learning ability.
No two children have the same educational needs, their requirements can change and evolve over time. That is why we have customised our curriculum to meet the needs of children and groups as they develop and grow, making sure they are fully equipped for age 14-19 progression.
By the time your child reaches Key Stage 4 at the beginning of Year 9, they will have developed all the necessary knowledge, skills, concepts and attitudes to succeed. We keep English and Maths at the core of your child’s learning and provide a variety of pathways and methods to ensure their success at every stage. We are committed to turning out students with the right knowledge and skills to prepare them for the next stage of their education.
Study after study shows that the single most important factor in determining the quality of a child’s education is the quality of their teacher. A good teacher sets high expectations for their students, and never gives up on underachievers. Likewise, a good student is not necessarily the one who is the brightest; it is the one who tries their hardest and is enthusiastic.
Aldridge School is no exception to this rule. We have structured our teaching and learning programmes to be engaging, interesting andmotivating for students. All faculties in the school have ‘Lead Learners’ whose aim is to ensure we continue to offer the highest standards, most innovative and challenging learning tailored to your child’s needs and abilities. We do this by using rigorous monitoring and tracking systems and analysis of performance data.
