Alder Grangers will use analysis, innovation and creativity to understand and adapt to the digital and physical world around them. Students will be active participants in a process that involves understanding and enjoyment of learning through contextual application of academic study that is communicated clearly using inclusive, constructivist pedagogies.

access an inclusive broad range of subjects that includes comprehensive coverage of each department area in Years 7 – 9 to ensure students make informed choices for Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 study pathways.
discover and develop their knowledge and passions through relevant, engaging, creative and inspirational learning activities, both within the core curriculum and enrichment provision.
be prepared for the future, either with qualifications to embark on a related future career, or with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills required to be a confident, resilient, and adaptive member of our digital society and business workforce.
be good citizens who consider safety, wellbeing, inclusion and accessibility through the lens of social, legal and ethical impacts of their own and others’ decisions.
