Welcome to the Arden website where I trust you will find all the information you require. While a website can provide an overview of many aspects of school life, it cannot accurately purvey our ethos, our sense of family or our place at the heart of the community – aspects of Arden of which we are incredibly proud.
Arden is a vibrant and active school community where the education and achievement of our students is paramount but balanced with our commitment to encourage our young people to fulfil their personal and social potential. The caring and supportive environment at Arden ensures that in time, our students can become adults who are resilient, flexible, proactive and ambitious enough to be extraordinary not average. This is evidenced by Arden’s position within the top ten percent of all state schools in terms of attainment – a remarkable achievement and testimony to the quality of teaching on offer.
"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'.”
