It also supports the St Albans Cathedral Study Centre which offers a range of courses, and draws students of many ages and backgrounds.

The Cathedral is an enthusiastic proponent of education dating back to medieval times as a centre of learning. With over 18,000 children, young people and adults learning here every year, the Cathedral is committed to continuing to deliver innovative learning programmes that are accessible to all. But it cannot do this without support. The Education Trust launched a Patrons of Learning programme, along with primary and secondary Patron Schools programmes, through which individuals and schools can help continue high quality and innovative learning at the Cathedral.
