Welcome to Alderman White School and Language College
Alderman White School is a member of the White Hills Park Federation Trust but maintains its own distinct identity and students benefit from the many activities that are available to them which enhance their curriculum as well as providing the opportunity to develop wider skills such as leadership and organisation.
We are proud of the work and achievements of the school and the wider Federation Trust. The principal behind our Federation is that each of the two schools that make up the Federation maintains its own identity and has all the advantages of a small school. However, by working together schools in the Federation also provide all the benefits of a large school, particularly in terms of increased opportunities which are available to every student.
As a parent I am sure that you are aware of the anxiety which some students feel about moving to a large secondary school. We believe that smaller schools are able to provide a much friendlier environment for younger students, particularly in Year 7. However, the disadvantage of small schools is that they cannot offer a varied range of courses for older students. Through collaboration schools within a Federation can create many more opportunities, particularly for older students when they choose their options at 14 and 16 years of age.
My staff are committed to maintaining the distinct identities of the schools but also ensure that we meet the needs of each student so they reach their full potential. We believe that we can only achieve the latter by working together as a Federation.
We look forward very much to meeting you.
Mr Kevin Dean
