Aldersgate school began in 1998 with 88 students in a small room (pictured on the left). In the last 20 years, the school has grown dramatically while gaining a positive reputation in the educational community as one of the most sought-after schools in the region.
Aldersgate is operated in partnership with the Church of God in Tanzania. Students come from all over Tanzania and many from within the Church of God. The school currently hosts a student population of over 1000 students with new students applying all the time. The school also has 100 staff. As the school continues to grow, the students from the Church of God in particular graduate with a quality education and are very well-prepared for further study in teacher training colleges, universities, or the workplace.
