An old-fashioned, traditional school which sees itself as very much part of the ‘establishment’ of leading public schools. With academics at its core, be aware that the thrust of the place is to get the boys to major public boarding...
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs
On entry to Aldro, boys are assessed in literacy, numeracy and cognitive skills. Together with this profile and the awareness of the teaching staff, we are able to identify boys presenting with specific learning difficulties. Learning support is offered as 1:1 lessons working from a carefully devised Individual Education Plan detailing targets, strategies and resources to be used. Progress is monitored and reported to parents. The qualified SEN tutors are dedicated to helping each pupil to reach potential and value the involvement of parents towards this goal. 09-09
