About Alban Academies Trust

Welcome to the Alban Academies Trust

Formed in 2018, the Alban Academies Trust now serves four primary and three secondary schools in and near St Albans in Hertfordshire.

As a Trust, our mission is to build a learning community of ‘World Class’ schools which share ‘Educational Excellence for Everyone’.

Each of our schools makes a powerful contribution to the on-going progress across the Trust – we enjoy working in partnership and learn constantly from each other. Our collaborative working style underpins all that we do, and we remain focused on continuously improving to provide both rewarding careers for our employees’ and amazing experiences for the young people in our care.

As you explore our schools pages, you will discover the rich mix of schools that make up our Trust, and see our vision for each school to maintain its own distinctive character and cherished heritage. This enables us to offer unique working experiences across our schools, with opportunities for variety and development to support fulfilling careers.
