Welcome to Aldro

Two boys smiling in a tree

We are an independent day and boarding prep school for boys aged 7-13. The school is in a beautiful and quiet setting in West Surrey, yet close to the A3 and only 45 minutes from central London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Our aim is to bring out the best in boys - something that is greatly helped by being single sex. Aldro boys move on at 13+ to a wide range of schools including Charterhouse, Eton, Harrow, Radley, the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Wellington and Winchester. We have an outstanding record of success in winning scholarship awards, both academic and for music, art, sport and all-round abilities.

The school's Christian ethos helps to promote a warm and caring environment; and pupils here have opportunities to pursue a huge range of activities outside the classroom from the conventional - such as sport, music, art and drama - to the exciting that many boys sadly cannot enjoy - such as den-making, shooting, rowing, sailing and fishing. It adds up to a beguiling combination and helps to explain why Aldro boys go on to thrive at their senior schools - and beyond.

We hope that you will enjoy exploring the website, which will give you a tantalising glimpse into what makes Aldro a really special place for boys.  But to find out what we are really about you need to visit us. We hold Open Mornings once a term and the dates for these can be found here; or do arrange a visit. We would be delighted to meet you and show you how we bring out the best in boys.
