Science Academy in St Albans
The Marlborough Science Academy is learning community that continues to flourish through a combination of dedicated staff, strong leadership and a student body who endeavour to embrace their learning opportunities.
Marlborough Science Academy has changed over the years in terms of improvements and innovation. The Ofsted grading of ‘Good’ across the board, was awarded in 2018 and the school has continued to improve. The focus is always on raising aspirations through excellent teaching and learning. This is also based firmly on positive student relationships. Happy children learn with pathways designed to inspire and we do all that we can to ensure that your child feels motivated, inspired and is cared for.
Our school life is about developing talents. We believe skills and maturity should grow and develop inside and outside of the classroom. All of our students have access to wonderful trips including China, India, France and Italy. There are extra-curricular clubs such as chess, cheerleading, Mandarin, Latin. reading clubs and of course many sports.
We look to improve and continue improving. All our students who leave post 16 education achieve their desired destinations and in some areas given personal choice and ambition, full time employment. We have developed strong links with the local business community and many of our students have gone on to study apprenticeships.
Our Gifted and Talented students are identified at an early age and encouraged to aim for the best they can possibly do using ACES days, visits to Oxford and Cambridge. External mentors are also introduced to support the application processes.
To extend provision for students at Post 16, we are now working within the Alban Learning Partners consortium including schools such as Loreto, STAGS, Townsend and Samuel Ryder. Smart business dress has been introduced Post 16. We continue to be proud of our track record which has put us in the top 3 schools within St Albans. Our apprenticeship programme is also significantly developed and offers alternative routes to students for whom university life is not their chosen route. Our newly introduced Cadets Force in partnership with St Albans Boys has become very popular.
The role of the parents is crucial in helping us get it right. The Headteacher holds a surgery every and meets with parents. Getting involved with the PTA is a good way of parents immersing themselves in school life and there are also a number of opportunities arising throughout the year to become a school governor.
The Marlborough Science Academy is part of the local community come and see for yourselves.
