Aldenham School, Founded 1597

The School

Aldenham Preparatory School (IAPS) offers day education for boys and girls from 3-11 to develop and thrive in a small, caring environment. 

Aldenham Nursery opened its doors in 1992 and was a great success.  Building on this success the Pre Prep Department opened in 2000 which has grown into  thriving Prep School. 

The new purpose built Vincent House opened its doors to pupils in March 2021.  Housing children from Nursery to Year 6 this impressive facility reflects the modernity and professionalism of the school.

As part of Aldenham school founded in 1597 there is the opportunity for a smooth transition of education from 3-18 years.
