Aldridge Study Centre is in the process of registering to be a licensed operator of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Boys in Year 10 can begin doing the Bronze Awards and progress to do the Silver or Gold in Year 11 and Year 12. For more information regarding the award please contact us or have a look at the Duke of Edinburgh website.
At Aldridge, we also have regular activities on a Friday night for senior high school (and university) students. Our chaplain preaches in the chapel for a period of guided prayer, followed by Benediction. Then we have a buffet-style dinner followed by an activity.
Senior high school students are also invited to come to Aldridge for supervised study sessions and talks on aspects of the Catholic faith.
The Big Picture Program
Senior high school students who attend activities at Aldridge Study Centre can also be involved in The Big Picture Program.
The Big Picture Program aims to introduce students in Years 10 and 11 to university life and the world of professional work. It endeavours to guide them towards building successful careers and, moreover, fulfilling lives. Beyond equipping students to make wise career decisions, the program aims to cultivate in young men an awareness of the bigger picture, extending to an understanding and sense of responsibility for society and their relationships with family and friends.
