Aldenham School, Founded 1597

Music and Drama

Music & Drama are important areas of the curriculum allowing students to express themselves creatively.

Learning to understand and appreciate music can unlock for children one of the core elements of what makes us human. It is often said that in music, our minds and our hearts can express themselves at the same time. At Aldenham, music is very important and children benefit greatly from the fact that is NOT an after-thought 'squeezed in' only when there is time. From Nursery onward, all children are taught by specialist music teachers.

Participating in Drama encourages pupils to use their imagination and teaches them how to express and share feelings and ideas. It also builds self-confidence and develops the ability to work in a team for a shared goal. At Aldenham, drama is taken seriously (although it is fun!). The children are taught by specialist teachers and have the opportunity to put on large scale productions in a dedicated space.

Aldenham UK

The Flagship of the Aldenham Foundation and founded in 1597, Aldenham UK is steeped in history with 423 years of academic excellence. It embodies the best of timeless traditions and universal values, along with a documented history of a forward-thinking culture that has differentiated it from its peers.

At Aldenham we remember that achievement is an individual matter, be it entry to an Oxbridge college, a sporting or cultural goal or it may simply involve growing up into a well-balanced individual. Dedicated teaching is at the heart of this endeavour as we help our students to focus on their own plans, while our teachers focus on our students.
