St. Alban’s Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary Aided school in the centre of the city of Cambridge in the grounds of the Catholic Church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs (OLEM). The school has a natural link with the three parishes of OLEM, St. Philip Howard and Sawston. This helps to promote a good Catholic ethos and provides cohesion amongst families who come from all over the city.
“St Alban’s School is an outstanding Catholic school. The extremely strong Catholic identity permeates the daily life of the school. The committed leadership of the headteacher and governors is instrumental in effectively promoting a strong spiritual purpose and developing the Catholic ethos. Prayer and worship are of pivotal importance in the school’s life. Staff are committed to the very high profile given to religious education.”
OFSTED R.E. Report (2010)
All the children, parents and staff benefit from being part of the community of Christ. The Gospel values of caring and respect for others are central to the ethos and work of the school. We have a School Chaplain who supports the staff, parents and children in all aspects of the religious life of the school and the Catholic community. The school is supported by the Governing Body who ensure that the curriculum is broad and balanced. The school is led by the Headteacher, Mr Joseph McCrossan.
“St Alban’s is a good school that serves all its pupils well. Aspects of its work are outstanding, including the extent to which pupils feel safe and adopt healthy lifestyles, the care, guidance and support the school provides, and its links with parents and carers. Pupils make good progress to attain above average standards in English, mathematics and science by the end of Year 6.”
OFSTED Report (2010)
St. Alban’s is a happy and popular school where children are loved and cared for, where they become very independent, confident and reliable young children as they experience the many exciting opportunities ahead of them. They are at the centre of our thoughts and by listening and working with them we offer an education which is fun, exciting and challenging.
