A new year and a new term - a time of immense promise and potential. There is much to anticipate in the weeks and months ahead, I am particularly looking forward to the production of ‘Fame’ which will take place in February. An event such as this encapsulates all that is great about Arden; teamwork, commitment, dedication and the nurturing of talent, be it on stage or behind the scenes.
In its broadest sense, education is the provision of knowledge, skills, values and beliefs - a conviction I wholeheartedly support and one that I believe is a great strength throughout Arden.
Arden is renowned for its superb examination results, 2014 saw Year 11 and Year 13 students excel again however it is the strength of our extra-curricular activities that also give me immense pride. The levels our students achieve in their chosen fields are quite amazing; we have sportsmen and women who participate at local, county and international level and an astonishing variety of talent in the performing arts arena. However I am equally proud of the students who join the many clubs, groups and forums Arden has to offer whatever their level of expertise because they have a desire to participate, learn and improve.
Performances of the School production will take place from Wednesday 25 - Saturday 28 February
Year 9 Options Evening will take place in the School hall
This will take place in the Conference Room. Arden parents are welcome to attend.
We have just been notified of the death of Mick Knight, a teacher at Arden between 1985 and 2010
On Thursday 5 February, selected pupils from Year 7 and 8 spent the afternoon with Wasps RFC ambassador and former English rugby player Paul Sackey.
