OUR VISION, ETHOS & VALUES

 

St Alban’s is a small, high quality Catholic, Voluntary Aided High School, which serves the Catholic Parishes and the wider Christian community of North Gwent.

We also open our doors to youngsters who share our ethos and values and who would prefer their post-16 education to be in a very caring, supportive and challenging environment.

The school motto is “Miles Christi Sum”, “I am a soldier of Christ.”  The crest or badge combines this motto with the symbol of the religious order. The Daughters of the Holy Spirit, ran a school on these premises from 1914 until the present school opened in 1963.  Park House, which was the home of the Hanbury family until 1914, was extended in 1954 with the addition of B Block and yet again in 1963 when C Block was added and finally in 1968 with the addition of D Block, giving a complete range of specialist science, craft and sports facilities.

The school has continued to develop and we are very proud that St Alban’s has established a reputation for high standards and high achievement.  Our aim is to provide a happy and secure environment, based on Gospel Values, in which the whole needs of the individual can be served in preparing him or her to take a place in society as a young Catholic/Christian.

We care passionately about the development of the whole person.  We recognise the uniqueness and value of each individual (created in the image and likeness of God). Human flourishing and the development of the whole person including spiritual, physical, social and emotional development is at the heart of our mission.
