ADMISSIONS

We dedicate ourselves to a stimulating, balanced programme, which is sensitive to the needs of individual students, and encourages them increasingly to assume responsibility for themselves and which promotes an ethos that learning is enjoyable.

Open Day (For all prospective families)

The St Alban’s College Open Day showcases what our fantastic school has to offer.

The day includes a tailor-made tour of the campus and a talk from the current Headmaster, Shane Kidwell.

 

 

Experience St Alban’s (Grade 7’s only)

Experience St Alban’s (ESA) is held annually in March. Over these two days, Grade 7 boys are given the opportunity to stay over at the College for a night and a day, write our benchmark tests, play sports and enjoy most of the activities we offer at the College.

Parents are invited to join us for a “Talk with Shane” when Shane Kidwell, the Headmaster, welcomes everyone and gives a detailed but often light-hearted account of the school. Finally, a cocktail party finishes the day, and happy, exhausted boys are sent home to recount their experiences further and discuss their futures.

Should you wish for your son to be considered for a Scholarship, it is imperative that he attends this event.

ESA will take place on the 7 and 8 March 2024

 

New Boys’ Day

“Ladies, gentlemen and New Boys of 2023, welcome to St Alban’s College. You join St Alban’s, which was established in 1963, in its Diamond Jubilee year. We will be celebrating 60 years of excellence and preparing young men for the future, and we are excited that your son joins us in this historic and significant year for us and, ultimately for them, as they now weave themselves into the history of the College.”
