What the school says...

Aldwickbury School is a vibrant and dynamic community, linking consistency and tradition with all that is best about modern educational practice. We understand how boys think, grow and learn, eventually becoming fine young men displaying a confident approach toward all that life may hold and a determination to carve out their own future.

The curriculum at Aldwickbury equips the boys with skills to succeed in future schooling and beyond. As a Christian school we pay due regard to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the boys. There is a daily programme of physical education and games, making full use of the extensive grounds surrounding the school.

The Pre-Prep Department is a happy, purposeful and friendly place where boys experience the joy of learning. Self expression linked to self discipline is encouraged, as well as a caring attitude and respect for others.

Our boys are polite, caring young men who enjoy being free to be boys. We are serious about the boys academic progress and they leave us able to be independent learners. From Year 6 flexible boarding is available, providing a happy and safe environment in which boarders are well cared for.
