The latest addition to the St Albans’ primary school scene has plenty to be pleased about following its first inspection by education regulator Ofsted.
Alban City Free School opened 18 months ago on Hatfield Road, and has been rated as ‘good’ by the school inspection service.
The school took its first reception class in September 2012, after primary schools in the area were oversubscribed with prospective pupils.
Only in its second academic year, the report has been well-received by teachers and pupils. The school’s minister, Lord Nash, said: “I congratulate staff and pupils at Alban City Free School on the publication of their first Ofsted report.”
The report highlighted many positive factors about the new school. Lord Nash added: “I am particularly impressed by the glowing comments Ofsted has made about the school’s outstanding leadership and excellent behaviour.”
