A short welcome from Headteacher,  Mr Tim Brogan

At St Alban’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, we believe that our focus on the wellbeing and welfare of the whole child and their family, alongside our curriculum, will allow them to grow as unique, independent and confident individuals and enable them to make a valuable contribution to their community.

We aim to help children develop in their journey of learning knowledge, acquiring skills and growing faith in a positive, diverse and inclusive learning environment, and exceptional curriculum. We place particular emphasis on four key drivers within our curriculum, including: Possibilities, Environment, Diversity and Communication.

St Alban’s Catholic Voluntary Academy is a loving, caring and welcoming community, where staff, parents, pupils and our connections with the parish of St Alban’s creates an environment where children develop their many talents, their academic ability and their social skills.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our academy soon.

The Admissions Authority for Our School

Overview of the Diocese of Nottingham

St Alban’s Catholic Voluntary Academy is under the Trusteeship of the Diocese of Nottingham and belong to the Nottingham Diocesan family of schools. They are founded by and are part of the Catholic Church and seek at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. Religious Education and worship are in accordance with the teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church. This does not affect the right of parents or carers who are not of the faith of these schools to apply for and to be considered for places. We ask all parents or carers applying for a place to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community.
