Welcome to Aldro
Aldro is an independent day and boarding prep school for boys aged 7-13. The school is a boys’ paradise 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. We aim to bring out the best in boys; by that we mean giving them a real boys’ experience. Being single sex, offering boarding opportunities throughout the school, playing sport every day of the week, building our stretching curriculum around boys’ interests are just some of what sets us apart from other schools.
Aldro boys move on at 13+ to a wide range of schools including Bradfield, Charterhouse, Cranleigh, Eton, Harrow, Radley, the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Radley, Sherborne, Tonbridge, 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. Equally, we have a very proud record of placing boys in senior schools of their choice where they go on to thrive.
The school's Christian ethos helps to promote a warm and caring environment – so often described as a real family feel, and not just by those who board. It is fair to say that Aldro boys love having a go at a vast range of activities, and we love encouraging them – this is how den-making, shooting, rowing, sailing and fishing have become so popular. Whether it is sport, music, the arts or taking part in performances, these are key areas of school life that we promote by giving opportunities for all – we know this helps boys to grow in confidence.
Our website is just a small, but tantalising glimpse into Aldro’s world. To fully see what makes us so special, you must arrange a personal visit and tour with the Headmaster and come to one of our open mornings.
We can’t wait to meet you, and our boys would be delighted to show you why they think their school is so amazing for them.
