I feel very privileged to be the Head of School at St Alban’s C of E Academy which is on a rapid journey of improvement.
St Alban’s is a caring Christian community which takes children from a wide and varied catchment area. We have close links with St Alban’s Church and our Christian values are at the heart of all that we do within our school. We work closely with parents and carers, constantly promoting parental engagement in all areas of school life.
Throughout the school we want our children to enjoy a wide and rich range of learning experiences which bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun. Our dedicated staff all work together to ensure that we support and nurture all of our children as well as providing them with the very best education possible.
Our new curriculum and high quality resources ensure all lessons are stimulating and engaging, which coupled with a comprehensive programme of visits, inspires all children to achieve their best. Our children also thrive on the extra-curricular provision we have in school and enjoy extending their learning beyond the school day.
We are very proud of our school and warmly invite you to discover more by arranging a visit where our children will happily help you to get to know St Alban’s C of E Academy and share their outstanding learning with you.

Head of School
“When my little girl started she was shy and timid, now she has developed really well with her reading, writing and social skills, which is thanks to the supporting and caring staff in the school.”
Miss Z Bird (Parent)
“I really like our achievement assemblies where we can celebrate our outstanding learning with our parents. Our after school clubs, visitors to school and our trips are brilliant and make our learning real.”
Eeffie, Year 6

We are looking forward to joining Manor Multi Academy Trust (MAT), and in anticipation of this alliance, we are working in close partnership with Manor Primary School a highly regarded National Teaching School. We are rebranding the school through a new logo and motto signifying our Christian ethos and links to Manor MAT. The colour of our uniform will also change to blue in September. Inside school a new flooring has been laid, bright new storage units have been fitted in every classroom and new window blinds will be installed very soon.
The whole school is also undergoing a redecorating programme and during the summer holiday a new main entrance and reception will be built. Children are the centre of everything we do at St Alban’s and they have been involved in the design of the new logo, motto, Christian values and resources to support the curriculum and outdoor learning. Everyone in school is very excited about the new look and feel of the school and we hope you will be too.
