St Albans High School for Girls

STAHS is one of the highest performing independent schools in the UK. From 4-18, pupils experience a full and well-balanced education for life, where aspiration and drive are balanced with kindness and generosity of spirit.

The journey starts at the Prep School where our able girls thrive in our warm, caring community set in 18 acres of field and woodland in the leafy village of Wheathampstead.  Moving on to Senior School, based at our city centre campus in St Albans pupils are very much part of the community.  World-class teaching, extension beyond the examined curriculum and opportunities through masterclasses and professional lectures, means STAHS pupils achieve the very best A level result, go on to places at top universities in the UK, and abroad, and springboard into phenomenal careers.

Our unique House system, central to pastoral care, is like the nucleus of each pupil’s school family, from Prep, to Senior, and stays with them for life as alumni.  At STAHS education for life is so much more than classroom learning. Through our expansive and dynamic co-curriculum, pupils explore new and interesting ideas, discover hobbies and passions that will stay with them long after they leave school, and learn life skills that equip them for the 21st century workplace.

Our pupils are grounded and ambitious young people. We prepare the young people in our care to make a positive impact – and they go on to do just that. Pupils go on to join the dynamic global network of thousands of successful STAHS alumni, leading fulfilling lives, giving back to their communities and making the most positive of impacts on the world.
