Aldersley High School is an over-subscribed 11-18 multi-cultural Technology College, situated in rural surroundings on the north western boundary of Wolverhampton. There are currently 900 students on roll. The school has vastly improved over recent years and has a very innovative approach to curriculum development.
>> School Ethos
At Aldersley High School we work hard to create a rich learning environment for all our students. Relationships are based on mutual respect and care for one another. Within this supportive framework our students are encouraged to work together positively and co-operatively. We place a strong emphasis on achievements and successes. Students are encouraged to value both their own achievements and those of others.
A clear disciplinary structure is in place and understood by all. We expect good behaviour of our students but where sanctions are necessary we involve parents at an early stage. Individual guidance is a key Feature of our approach. Students know that bullying is unacceptable. At Aldersley High School students are encouraged to report any incidents they see and so such incidents are rare.
We listen to what our students have to say. The elected Student Committee meets regularly, and two Sixth Form students attend meetings of the Governing Body.

We believe that it is only through the quality of the people who work in the school that we can achieve this aim. We are committed to high standards of training for all our staff and have been awarded Investors in People status. This award measures our staff training and our organisation against national standards. Achieving the award means that we are formally recognised as a quality organisation. Aldersley High School is the first secondary school in Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire to have achieved the award. This gives Aldersley High School the recognition it deserves as a school determined to meet new demands and challenges with confidence and success
