Happy St Alban’s Day

Today is St Alban’s Day

Our school sets huge value on the quality of courage so let’s take a moment to think about St Alban’s courageous act.

St Alban is venerated as the first recorded Christian martyr in England. His death came as a result of him shielding a priest to whom he had given refuge. It is in the nature of this story that it concerns one who gave his life for his values and beliefs.
Though a legend the story embodies something of the vulnerability that is required if we are to act in courage. Alban quite literally cloaks himself with the garment of the one he seeks to protect and, in doing so, takes his place.

Mrs Kenny 

Year 5 teacher and Head of School

I am very happy to be back at St Albans after spending last Year in Doncaster and am especially excited to be back in Y5! I have lots of exciting topics planned for the year and will be starting with Space.

In my role as Head of School I work closely with all stakeholders to ensure the St Albans, and all of those who are part of the St Albans school community, are the best that they can be.
