In addition to the this, a school nursery opened within the school in September for children aged two, three and four.

“In addition to these internal improvements, the school has invested in numerous devices to support their curriculum and learning and the grounds have been developed with an active mile track, outdoor learning provsion making better use of the large field and wooded area and resurfaced driveway.

"The children are delighted with their 'new' school and are all enjoying learning at St Alban's.”
