Aldenham School, Founded 1597


The Head and Deputy Head of the Prep School like to meet all prospective parents and we encourage you to make an appointment for a tour of the school so that you can see at first hand why Aldenham is so special.

Children start in the Foundation Stage (Nursery) in the term of their third birthday. There are two Nursery rooms, Elmer and Wilbur and a Reception class. The admissions procedure at 4+ takes the form of a playgroup activity.

The Reception Class (age 4-5) offers an excellent start to children as they begin their first year of formal schooling. Continuing to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, the children are offered every opportunity to flourish before moving on to Year 1.

Nursery and Pre-prep are located in a dedicated building called 'Wilson House' complete with a playground and woodland area.  Children benefit from excellent facilities, highly qualified staff and freshly cooked lunches on site by our own chef. Parents are updated by a weekly newsletter.

Children may be registered at any age by completing the Registration Form and paying the £75 registration fee. Please contact the Nursery office on 01923 851666, the Prep School office on 01923 851664 to speak with Mrs Beech or Mrs Turner. Alternatively, you may contact us by email at
