Welcome to our school
We are passionately committed to providing a high quality education for the children in our care so that every child does well here. As an inclusive school we aim to guide and support children so that they achieve their very best educationally, socially and physically in an environment that puts children’s needs at the top of the agenda and where parents feel confident that their children are safe and well cared for during their time with us.

Last Friday we held a charity scooter wash in support of Action Medical Research who help sick and disabled children. Action Medical Research is Paddington Bear’s favourite charity and he paid school a very special visit. As well as bringing their favourite bear to school to meet Paddington, the children also brought their scooters to school and helped a team of volunteers wash them. The total amount raised on the day was £428. Thank you to everyone for supporting this event by organising, donating and volunteering.
We are pleased to announce that the planning application for the demolition of the Pemberton Building and the creation of a multipurpose games area and increased play space has been approved by St Albans District Council. Work will commence later in the year once all planning pre-requisites and conditions have been met.
The school are looking forward to having an outdoor sports facility alongside an imaginative and high quality playground.
Linda Crawley, the lead proposer, founder and current Chair of Governors for Alban City School was recognised for her services to education during an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle, Berkshire on Tuesday 8th December.
“I am delighted to receive such an accolade for something I enjoy and I am passionate about. This award is not just for me but for the teams I have been fortunate enough to work with. I continue to be excited about ensuring every child receives a high quality and well-rounded education.” said Mrs Crawley.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Children in Need today by helping with activities and in sending in donations. The children have had fun with the sports activities that school have been running in the hall. Special thanks to the PTA for holding their Scooter Wash in the courtyard. The parent helpers along with four volunteers from our accountants Kingston Smith helped the children clean their scooters a class at a time & completed the challenge despite some very changeable weather, they did a great job!
Alban City School and Access Self Storage join forces to help refugees in Calais
This year, the parents and children at Alban City School are helping efforts to provide aid for refugees in Calais. They have already sent hundreds of items including firewood, building materials and cooking equipment to bring comfort to refugees stuck in camps.
The donations are piling up quickly, so quickly in fact that here at the school we have no room for them anymore! Luckily, the team at Access Self Storage Hemel Hempstead has agreed to store all of the excess items free of charge until sufficient funds can be raised to transport them to Calais.
Local parent Max Abbiss-Biro has set up a crowd-funding page with a target of £500 to cover the cost of transporting the items to the refugees by the end of the month. Staff, students and parents have already donated over £350 to the cause.
Max said: “With help from the community, we can deliver real and effective relief through what promises to be a very challenging winter for men, women and children trapped in the dunes outside Calais – a two hour drive and a half-hour ferry ride from our front doors.”
If you would like to get involved, you can help in two ways:
Either by making a donation at: http://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/AlbantoCalais or by donating items to be sent over to Calais: currently Max and his team are looking for donations of tents, boots, jackets, mobile phones, razors and food, to help refugees in the coming winter months.
All item donations should be taken to Access Self Storage Hemel Hempstead on Riversend Road, which has kindly offered free use of its storage space until the end of the appeal.
