Aldro strives to ensure that each pupil is happy, encouraging them to value each other and be supportive of each other. This Christian ethos underpins the school – making the children part of a caring, happy extended family is key to Aldro’s success. Our Form Tutors and all our staff play an essential role in supporting the pastoral programme, which is a fundamental part of life at Aldro.
The Headmaster, Assistant Heads Academic and Pastoral and the Form Tutors monitor each child’s academic and personal progress, believing that personal growth and academic development come from a happy, caring environment where children are encouraged and feel valued. For the boarders, the Housemaster and Matrons also provide an extra level of care and attention, enhancing the family atmosphere that surrounds the school.
We are often told that Aldro pupils are easily recognised at their senior schools by their maturity and self-confidence and we regularly hear great reports of their success in academic life, sport, music, art and drama. A large number of our pupils go on to achieve significant positions of responsibility. As a prep school, our job is to prepare our pupils for the next stage, so this positive feedback tells us that we must be getting things right.
