A Very Warm Welcome to King’s St Alban’s

King’s St Alban’s is set in an idyllic location on the bank of the River Severn in the shadow of Worcester Cathedral. It is a Prep School within the King’s Foundation, offering outstanding education to children from 2 to 11.

Championing a love of learning

The early school years are so important. At King’s St Alban’s we believe passionately in offering an outstanding, all-round education to all our children. We are small enough to care for each child; our staff know children and their families well and we are very proud of our reputation for excellent pastoral care, but we are big enough to offer a genuine sense of community and a wide range of opportunities. I want every child to feel safe, secure and happy because we all know that happy children thrive. We are blessed with an attractive, well-positioned site and excellent facilities right next to the ‘big King’s’.

A world of opportunity

We want all children to achieve, to try new and different things and perhaps find an area of particular interest. We are proud of our inclusive approach to sport, music, dance, and drama but equally proud to offer opportunities to those who show a real aptitude in their chosen areas. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see busy, happy, fulfilled children. Our dedicated teachers foster a love of learning and a grounding in learning skills. Children are supported, nurtured and challenged in the safe environment of the classroom. Class sizes are small, allowing personalised learning, whilst our focus on Growth Mindset has allowed us to model and consider skills such as resilience, curiosity, and reflectiveness.

Learning outside of the classroom

Learning and development are not confined to the classroom as children thrive in our Forest School, our fantastic pool, and our dance studio. Our extensive clubs programme keeps our children interested and fulfilled beyond timetabled school hours. Our visitors often comment on the warmth of our welcome and the ‘buzz’ of the school.

Our website will give you a glimpse of the opportunities, education approach and community we have here. I hope it gives you a sense of the energy, excitement to learn and the passion of our teachers. I’m sure you will also see why we are proud of our location, heritage, the staff of the school, but most importantly the children who are at the centre of the school’s offering. Please do have a good review of our pages and we hope this will entice you to come and meet us all.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your children at King’s St Alban’s.

Children are supported, nurtured and challenged in the safe and friendly environment of the classroom. Class sizes are small, allowing personalised learning and providing the perfect opportunity for children to have fun and to learn creatively.

Teachers are extremely well qualified and passionate too, with many being a subject-specialist, and they make the most of our facilities here and at the Senior School. This ensures that children not only receive the very best education possible but also develop a real love of learning.
