Start of New Academic Year 2021-2022

We are delighted with the government’s announcement that all children are expected to be at school from the start of the new term and the restrictions of bubbles have been lifted too. Already we can see staff and children more relaxed and pleased to be back in school. We would like to thank all the parents and staff for the great effort they have shown throughout the last 18 months, to all the frontline workers for protecting the health and safety of our community, to the parents for the superb support with the home schooling and the children for their resilience and positive attitude to learning.

As we now look forward to the return to some kind of normality, it is important we continue to keep safe and so we will continue with only children and staff being allowed on the school premises. We will review this at half term when hopefully we will be able to invite parents back onto the playground.

Please feel free to contact me if there are any issues.

God bless and keep safe.

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 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.

Please explore our website to learn more about our school.
