Albany Academy is a highly regarded small school located in the south of Chorley, an area that boasts excellent schools and colleges in all phases. The academy is a high performing school, which has an excellent reputation in the local area and is heavily oversubscribed. In 2016 we were awarded Chorley Sports School of the Year; recognition of our exceptional extra curricular offer and that we punch well above our weight in the local area. The school is consistently in the top 10 schools in Lancashire for pupil progress. We are highly ambitious for our students, our staff and the wider educational community and we provide support for other Lancashire schools, work closely with other providers and have established the first Multi-Academy Trust of its kind in Lancashire.
