Aldenham School, Founded 1597

Upper School (Key Stage 2)

The Upper School is the beginning of Key Stage 2. We offer education for boys and girls from ages 7 to 11, and allow them to develop and thrive in a vibrant yet caring environment. Most children will come to us having attended our Nursery and Lower School, but we do also accept children from other settings.

Optimum class sizes and expert teaching from an early age ensure that academic attainment at Aldenham is high. However, there’s more to education than academia; sport, arts, drama, music, co-curricular activities, and school trips are all part of an Aldenham child’s education.

We pride ourselves on providing an excellent all-round education, and laying the important foundations of learning early on. When children graduate from Aldenham Prep, they will be curious and confident, and ready to face their senior schooling with all the correct building blocks in place.

We understand that good communication with parents is vital to a school’s success. As well as weekly newsletters, parent access to the school portal results in excellent communication with parents.

Aldenham UK

Founded in 1597, Aldenham UK is the flagship of the Aldenham Foundation and is steeped in history, with over 425 years of academic excellence. Aldenham UK - and all of our schools - embodies the best of timeless traditions and universal values, along with a documented history of a forward-thinking culture that’s served to differentiate us from our peers.

At Aldenham, we remember that achievement is an individual matter - whether that’s entry to an Oxbridge college, a sporting or cultural goal, or simply growing up into a well-balanced individual. Dedicated teaching is at the heart of everything we do. While we help our pupils to focus on their own plans, our teachers focus on our pupils.
