A new year and a new term…both bring with them immense promise. I am always keen to stress to students the importance of a good beginning and this is never more opportune than the beginning of a new term. Carl Sandburg* once said ‘though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending’. I would encourage all our students to embrace this philosophy and make the most of the excellent opportunities Arden has to offer not just academically but by participating in the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer. I am immensely proud of our students and never more so than when they demonstrate their adherence to and success in achieving the Arden values of friendship, respect, excellence, equality, courage, determination and inspiration. I believe by fully engaging in all that Arden has to offer and embracing these values, our students will become successful citizens of the future. This belief was showcased at our Awards Evening in November where the many successes of former Year 11 and Year 13 students were acknowledged and celebrated.
"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'.”
