I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to Arden. We are an exciting and ambitious school that strives daily to ensure opportunities for all of our students and staff. We pride ourselves on our "Arden Family", a supportive and caring culture that ensures an environment exists where students can be pushed and challenged to achieve their potential and where our highly skilled staff can deliver the highest levels of inspiring and engaging learning.
Through our broad curriculum and our extensive array of co-curricular opportunities we provide opportunity for all students to find their passion and to achieve their potential in their chosen pathways. The Co-curricular opportunities on offer add depth and variety to our students learning, ensuring that school fulfils a far greater role than just the delivery of a curriculum.
Arden is an ambitious and aspirational school. Our students value education and recognise the crucial role it plays in ensuring that they are prepared to enter the worlds of further education and work as skilled and resilient members of the community. We are very proud of the exam results that our students achieve (A Level 2019 and GCSE 2019 Results) and the fact that they leave us well equipped for the next stages in their lives at the age of 16 or, for a majority, 18.
The achievements that our students accomplish and the wonderful young adults that they develop into are shaped through a culture of expectation. We have exceptionally high expectations. Students of all ages are expected to display the very strongest attitudes towards learning,to take pride in their work and to challenge themselves in each and every lesson. The pride that students have in their school is demonstrated through the very high standard of uniform. Smart appearance, a strong work ethic and exemplary behaviour creates the climate where all students flourish.
"I am inordinately proud of Arden students and staff who, by working together as a successful and cohesive team, exemplify the Arden values of ‘friendship, respect, excellence, equality, courage, determination and inspiration’. These values are at the very heart of Arden’s ethos and are the code by which we all aspire to live and learn."
“Arden's A Level results are consistently exceptional. Recent pass rates have been in excess of 99% in every single A Level subject'.”
