Your child deserves an outstanding education. We believe that children are worth more than a limited entrance examination and it is for this reason we select pupils on a child’s potential and the value we can add – not just on tapered academic assessments.
At Arnold Lodge School, our mission is:
“To develop the happiness, confidence and skills of each pupil so they can be successful in their aspirations.”
We believe that:
- Every child in school should feel happy, safe and confident.
- Every child should have the opportunity to develop and be valued for their individual strengths.
- Every child should make the most academic and emotional progress they can in a supportive and positive environment.
- Every child should develop the skills they will need to be successful in the future.
Every child who joins Arnold Lodge School deserves the right to feel happy, safe and confident in school and to be able to make the most progress they can.
Some children will achieve the highest grades and they will do so in an environment where they are challenged, supported and valued for more than their hard work and academic achievement.
For a different child, securing a pass in English might be a huge success and this achievement, and the varied strengths of that child, is valued just the same. Academic study at Arnold Lodge School is not about percentages and statistics, it’s about the individual pupil and helping them to attain the very highest grades they can.
“We believe that children are worth more than a limited entrance examination and it is for this reason we select on a child’s potential and the value we can add – not just on tapered academic assessments.”
School is about so much more than classroom teaching, of course. Our approach continues in music and sport where pupils are encouraged to get involved, gain experiences and to enjoy being active, creative and confident in their abilities. Some of our pupils are outstanding artists or musicians and these skills are valued highly at Arnold Lodge School.
All of our pupils are encouraged to develop their leadership skills; from joining our Pupil Parliament, taking part in Duke of Edinburgh right the way through to being selected Head Pupil, there are opportunities throughout the school for children to grow in confidence and find new interests and passions.
