School of Sanctuary


Showing love to refugees!

What is a School of Sanctuary? 


  • A school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for those seeking sanctuary.
  • A school that helps its students, staff and wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal valued members of the school community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
  • Raises awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, challenges misconceptions and builds social cohesion.⁣

Orange Landmark Day 🧡

On Monday 21st March, our School Council representatives went to Birmingham City Centre to form a human chain around Carrs Lane Church to oppose the Nationality and Borders Bill.

At St Alban's, we want to make a stand against the Anti-Refugee Bill and call for a more compassionate approach. We believe strongly that all individuals should be treated fairly, with respect and dignity.

We oppose the principle of treating refugees differently based on how they arrived here rather than their need for protection so therefore, would like to see the removal of Clause 11.

Our School Council made their own banners and signs to show their thoughts on the Border's Bill and to send refugees messages of welcome and love! heart
