St Alban’s Catholic Academy was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families.  The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its trust, deed and instrument of government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.

 As a community of schools and through God’s Love, we endeavour to inspire and motivate our children so they can learn together, grow together, and achieve together. As a Trust we believe passionately in a rich education.  John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Through Jesus, we ensure that our children have life, and have it to the full. We ensure children excel, not just academically but in faith as disciples and as individuals. Our children learn to love themselves, love each other and the world around them and to love God.
I invite you to come to visit us and see for yourself how we seek to develop each child by encouraging them to understanding that through God’s love, we learn together, grow together, and achieve together
