Aldridge is committed to creating opportunities in everything it does.
The Aldridge Foundation is a charity that supports social change and community regeneration. The prime focus of our work is in support of the communities where Aldridge Education (the Multi Academy Trust we established in 2016 which is responsible for the performance of Aldridge schools) and Aldridge Wealth operate.
Sir Rod Aldridge launched the Foundation in 2006 after retiring from Capita Plc, the business he set up and which became one of this country’s most successful companies. Over 10 years we developed a family of sponsored non-selective community academy schools and colleges that have a strong focus on developing entrepreneurial skills and on rapidly improving the quality of education on offer in order to transform the life-chances of young people. In September 2016 we established Aldridge Education as a multi-academy trust which is now responsible for the performance of the schools.
The Foundation now focuses on creating social change and community regeneration opportunities through entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial education to help young people to reach their potential and improve their communities.
