St Alban’s Catholic Primary School is a voluntary aided school in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. The school was founded by and is part of the Catholic Church and is in Trusteeship of the Diocese. The school is conducted as a Catholic school in accordance with canon law, the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Trust Deed of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. It seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. The school offers a Catholic education. The governors expect that parents applying for places for their children will accept and uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. The school was set up primarily to serve the Catholic community in   St Barnabas Parish. The relevant parish map can be viewed at the school by arrangement. Although Catholic children have priority of admission, the Governing Body also welcomes applications from those of other denominations and faiths who support the religious ethos of the school. Having consulted with the Diocese, Local Authority, other admission authorities and other relevant groups, the Governors intend to admit into the reception class, in September 2016, up to 60 pupils without reference to ability or aptitude.
