Welcome to Mount Pleasant Lane Primary School

Welcome to Mount Pleasant Lane Primary School - a 1.5 form entry school for children from 3 to 11 years old set in very spacious grounds in Bricket Wood on the outskirts of St Albans. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the quality of education we strive to deliver.


We are part of the Spiral Partnership Trust: a multi-academy trust which specialises in developing excellent primary schools. We collaborate with the other schools in the Trust to ensure that teaching and learning is of the highest standard possible.


MPL is a happy, safe and enjoyable place for your child, where they will be challenged and motivated to learn. We want all children to be excited about learning and work closely with our families to make sure that happens. It is our belief that every child should have the opportunity to be the best they can be; to enjoy their schooling and achieve as well as they can. Learning is for life and we aim to give our children the best skills and knowledge possible to equip them for life beyond primary school.


We are very proud of the excellent, dedicated team of staff and governors who work at MPL. One of us would be delighted to show you round our school and let the children speak for themselves!
