Values and Ethos
As a small school in the heart of our local community our mission statement remains the same each year and that is to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our students thereby ensuring the best life chances for everybody in our care.
This is underpinned by a belief that ‘an education’ is more than just a set of qualifications but is an experience which allows young people to enhance their natural talents, gifts and abilities. We are committed to ensuring that all children receive a first class education that prepares them thoroughly for the future and allows them to play an active role in the life of the school and wider community.
We strive to ensure that all our students are supported to be the articulate, tolerant, resilient and caring young people who will go into the world beyond Aldercar High School capable of achieving great things and making a difference.
Our House system fosters healthy competition in a wide range of sports and activities emphasising loyalty, commitment, good sportsmanship and a sense of fair play. Everyone at our school is a member of a House and engages regularly in House activities, with a House assembly once a week to reinforce the sense of community and belonging.
We are very proud of our caring reputation built up over many years for supporting students of all abilities to achieve excellent results at both GCSE and A level which enables them to move on to the best in higher education, training and employment.
Aldercar High School is a school about individuals and it is our vision that everybody feels that they have a voice which can be heard within the school and a personalised experience which enables them to succeed both personally and academically.
