Welcome to Aldercar High School & Sixth Form Centre
The staff, governors and students of Aldercar High School and Sixth Form Centre extend a warm welcome to you. We are a rapidly improving school which has seen recent improvements in the academic achievements of our pupils.
We challenge our students to have high expectations of themselves throughout their school life. Good attendance and punctuality, as well as working hard and to the best of their ability, are key to their academic success. Being respectful, courteous and disciplined allows our students to develop into responsible members of both our school and their local community.
Aldercar High School is a happy and harmonious school where students are cared for well. They feel safe and their talents are nurtured by their teachers. Staff have strong relationships with parents so that students can be best supported to achieve their very best.
We aim for all of our students to leave Aldercar High School with the qualifications that reflect their very best ability as well as have the social confidence to make a real impact on their world whatever their talents.
I hope that our prospectus and website provides you with an insight into the life of students at Aldercar High School and that you have all the information that you need to make the right choice of school.
