Albany Academy is a highly successful co-educational 11-16 school in Chorley and is one of the top performing non-selective schools in Lancashire.
As a small school we are able to ensure that every one of our students is well known and cared for. The school not only provides an exceptional academic education, but also develops young people as confident individuals who are aware of their role and responsibilities within society.
