The School understands that it may not be appropriate for every student to attend Assemblies in the Abbey, and an alternative programme of assemblies is arranged for them on the School site. Everyone is expected to attend our Act of Remembrance in November and the Founders’ Day Service of Commemoration in July.
St Albans School encourages students to explore and understand the world in which we live. Assemblies are held every Monday and Friday morning and form an important part of our students’ educational experience.
Below is the text of our first Abbey Assembly of the academic year, which explains why St Albans School uses the Cathedral for its assemblies every Monday and Friday morning.
