Welcome to the Alban Learning Partners (ALP) – a group of highly respected Sixth Form providers that work collaboratively to provide an exceptional A Level experience for students in the St Albans area.

Our partnership includes Loreto College, Samuel Ryder Academy, St Albans Girls' School, Townsend Church of England School and The Marlborough Science Academy.

A shared desire for very high academic standards and rigorous attention to detail is the common underpinning feature of all our Sixth Forms and we work in partnership with local businesses and other education providers to ensure that ALP students have an unparalleled learning experience.

Our students benefit from being able to choose from a very wide range of courses and gain access to outstanding facilities and specialist resources that simply cannot be found within a single organisation.
