There are more than 100 billion stars in the universe. They may look alike but they’re not identical. Each one is unique.
Here at St Albans High School for Girls – STAHS – we believe that all our students are unique individuals who learn and develop differently. St Albans High School for Girls is an independent day school for girls from the age of 4 to 18.
The journey starts at the Prep School, based in the leafy village of Wheathampstead just 5 miles from St Albans. With 18 acres of field and woodland, every child has the opportunity to get muddy in the outdoors, to play, to develop her passion for learning and to have fun.
Our Senior School is situated centrally in the historic city of St Albans, only 25 minutes by train from north London. We have around 1100 students, with 170 in the Sixth Form and 340 in the Prep School. Admission is academically selective, by interview and assessment designed to identify the potential to thrive at STAHS.
We focus on constructing and fostering students’ intellectual and social confidence all the way through the School. Building their assurance through an exciting range of intellectual and co-curricular opportunities is an important part of preparing students for university and for work. And we are delighted that the vast majority of our students go on to top university destinations when they leave STAHS.

Bursaries & Scholarships
Our Bursary and Scholarship programmes offer a range of opportunities and possibilities.
We believe finance should not be a barrier to an exceptional education. We want to attract bright, ambitious students whose families may not consider our school because they cannot afford the fees.
We offer a comprehensive package of bursary support up to 100% of school fees, depending on individual circumstances. We are actively fundraising to be able to offer bursary support to even more pupils in the coming years.
We welcome applications for bursaries from anyone joining the Senior School.
Students likely to succeed will have a strong academic record and other interests and talents, such as music, sport or drama, which will help them make the most of the opportunities at STAHS.
The STAHS Scholarship Programme opens up a range of opportunities for scholars to stretch themselves, extending their learning and developing their skills. Our scholars are role models, leading by example in their attitude and approach and passionately promoting engagement in their areas.
