What the school says...
Established over 400 years ago, Aldenham School still occupies the same site of more than 110 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. Aldenham offers uninterrupted co-education for 3-18 year olds. Boarders (from age 11) and day pupils benefit from individual attention in small classes, with a personal tutor for each pupil.

Previously head of sixth form at Brentwood School and deputy head at Highgate. Permeates every facet of school with his relaxed charisma and understanding of what makes parents and pupils tick. Unusually, interviews every candidate with their parents before admission. Is he interviewing the parents as well as the child, we asked? ‘Of course,’ he says. ‘I spend a lot of time helping people understand what we are and are not.’ And it’s to this level of mutual soul searching that he attributes the happy, enthusiastic nature of his cohort in evidence all over the school, almost all of whom he knows by name and who claim that their voice...
Special Education Needs
We have an extremely good SEN Department. However, pupils do need to be able to cope in the normal classroom situation; they are not taught separately, but have extra individual tuition as and when necessary with qualified SEN teachers. Study skills support is provided in small groups. 10-09
