Headteacher's welcomeIt is my great pleasure to welcome you to one of Balham's best kept secrets! I truly believe Alderbrook is a remarkable school and at present we are going through one of the most exciting times of our development, having completed major building works, as we expand into a two-form entry school.
Children are at the heart of everything we do. In this ever-changing world that we live in, we strive to ensure that every pupil who leaves Alderbrook is a responsible, self-motivated, open-minded learner, ready to face the challenges ahead with confidence and self-belief. We take our responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible very seriously and know that being given the opportunity to educate other people's children is a very rare and special privilege.
As teachers, our work beigns by nurturing the many qualities and skills that you have fostered at home and throughout the time your child is at Alderbrook, we will work closely with you to encourage your child to be the best that they can be.
School should be fun and we know that happy children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out the talents of every child, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. Our highly qualified staff go the extra mile every day to ensure each child is ready to make the most of the exciting learning experiences on offer.
On behalf of our children, staff and governors, I extend a very warm welcome to you and your family and hope that you will come to visit us in the very near future.
