MAT Provision

In St Alban’s, we aim to help each pupil to develop higher order learning skills, creativity and aspirations which lead them to enjoy learning within school and in later life. We aim to create a classroom climate where pupils are motivated to learn, and offer extra-curricular activities where students can continue to develop their interests and abilities. We create a culture of success so that high achievers will not look out of place.
