“Aldenham’s all-round education nurtures happy, confident and successful individuals.”

There are four boarding Houses; McGill's, Beevor's and Kennedy''s which are for boys and Paull's House for the girls. There are two day Houses (Riding's for girls and Leeman's for boys) and two Junior Houses (Martineau's and Woodrow's). As well as taking full part in the sporting, cultural and academic life of the School the boys and girls within each House will also help run and support events within their own House.

Aldenham has been on the same site since 1597 and blends tradition with a modern, inclusive and fresh approach to education. Academic outcomes are strong. At GCSE half of all exam results last year were graded 7 (A*/A) or above and in the Sixth Form individual coaching is provided to those pupils aiming for Oxbridge, medicine or a Russell group university.

Aldenham’s reputation for excellence in sport is well-deserved (ISFA National Champions at football for the last three years) and we are equally proud of our creative arts with Drama, Art, Music and Dance performances being highlights of the school year. A blend of day and full/flexi boarding allows us to cater for all requirements. We would be delighted to show you what Aldenham has to offer.
