We did it again!

We are pleased to announce that the netball team won their match by 3-2 this afternoon against St.Peter’s School.

St.Peter’s hosted the match and we were impressed by their good sportsmanship. They also chose Scarlett Meggs as our player of the match, who plays goal attack. Thank you so much to the parents, aka paparazzi! – what a great turn out! Your support means a lot to the children.

Netball Match Result

We are pleased to share that we had our first non-league netball match this afternoon against Maple Primary School. Both teams played really well, with Alban City School winning 7-5.  Well done to all who played and thank you to our spectators.

E-Safety Talk

On Wednesday 17th January from 6.30pm – 7.15pm we will be hosting an E-Safety Meeting for parents. All parents are welcome but please bear in mind it will not be appropriate for you to bring children with you. We hope you will be able to join us and take the opportunity to share key information and tips on how to help your child to stay safe when they are online. If you navigate to our Parents page from the ‘About Us’ hyperlink at the top of the page you will find a handout and other useful information on E-Safety.

School Closure

School will be closed on Monday 11th December. The decision has been made this evening as a number of staff are unable to get into school due to the heavy snow and as more is forecast for this evening. School will reopen as normal on Tuesday 12th December unless we notify you otherwise.


Last week we received a letter from the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards. It is to congratulate us on our outstanding achievement in the 2017 phonics screening check with 95% of pupils reaching or exceeding the pass mark. This places Alban City School in the top 8% of all primary schools in the country. Please do have a read, we are very pleased to have received this recognition.  Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP letter 11.2017

School Awards 2017

IMG_2824All the staff at Alban City School would like to thank you all for once again nominating us as Primary School of the Year. We are honoured to have made finalists and really appreciate the time you have given towards making the nominations. We are all proud of our pupils and the school community that we are so lucky to work within. Thank you for your continued support.

International Week

Last week supported by our parents and the local community we held our third International Week. With a ‘Food’ theme, children took part in workshops within school and in some of our local shops and restaurants to learn about, taste and cook foods from different countries. The week was rounded off with a ‘Food Court’ in the school hall for the children to share with their parents samples of foods from the many countries represented. Thank you to everyone who helped make the week such a success.

Eco Schools

We are pleased to let you know that we have been awarded the Eco Schools bronze award for our work on sustainability with the children. We are now working towards the next level of the programme and working towards the silver standard. We have started the year by working on a waste project where we are weighing the food waste during the lunch session every day this week. We will then be using this information for learning activities with the children and later in the term will repeat the food weighing exercise again to see if we have made a difference.

Eco Committee

Following our recent elections, each class now has two eco reps who along with staff, parent and governor representatives will make up our eco committee. Our new committee will meet half termly to discuss how we can work to bring about change to the environment and increase knowledge. We are working towards achieving the bronze level award in the Eco Schools programme. These are our newly elected eco reps.





Outdoor PE

The children have been able to use our new Multi Use Games Area to enjoy an outdoor PE lesson for the first time today. We thought you might like to see some photographs of the children honing their hockey skills.
