Each week we will be sharing interesting facts about our unique school in a series of ‘Did you know?’ posts.
We are kicking things off with: Did you know that King’s St Alban’s is one of only a few schools in Worcester to have a chapel on its grounds.
The King’s St Alban’s chapel which lies at the heart of the school was built in 1873 and purchased by The King’s School, Worcester in 1951 as part of St Alban’s House for a bargain price of £22,000.
Before being purchased by The King’s School, the chapel and St Alban’s House acted as a small home and school for orphaned and destitute girls. St Alban’s House was acquired by Cordelia Stillingfleet and was named after the parish in which it stood.
The Junior School moved to St Alban’s House in January 1952. The school has seen many changes over the years but the chapel remains an integral part of the school and is used daily for worship, song practices, informal concerts and drama recitals.
