Aldenham School, Founded 1597

Watch Our Webinar: British VS American Education

Many private international schools in the GCC use curricula either from the UK or the US, with students taking exams administered in each of these systems. As parents, you often hear about GCSE, IGCE, A-Levels, SAT, ACT, but you aren’t often told what these acronyms mean and what these exams involve.

Our webinar, hosted by James Fowler (CEO of The Aldenham Foundation) and Alec Nejad (Managing Partner at the Aldenham Education Group), answers your questions about the British and American Education systems. Exploring the differences between the two curricula, in this webinar we determine the benefits of each for your child and their future, helping you to understand what best suits your child’s educational needs.

The session also includes a Q&A session at the end with Vicky Gocher, headmistress at Aldenham Prep for over 10 years and founding headmistress of Aldenham Prep Riyadh, who answers attendee questions.

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.
