It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to St Albans Girls’ School website. We are a high achieving Academy specialising in educating girls. Our distinctive ethos and Enterprise focus, ensure that we are uniquely placed to provide an outstanding education for girls from the ages of 11 – 18, with boys admitted into the Sixth Form. We are a caring, vibrant and dynamic community and proud of our very strong record in developing the best talents of all students in preparing for lifelong learning.

Our students thrive on expert teaching, good quality facilities and a vast range of extracurricular activities. Our academic results are impressive, we insist on high standards; we expect our students to work to the best of their ability, to behave in a way which shows courtesy to those around them and to wear their uniform smartly. We know that if we have high expectations of our students, there is no limit to what they can achieve; the sky’s the limit!

We are particularly proud of our Post 16 provision here. We offer a very wide range of courses: A Levels; the Extended Project Qualification; the Sports Leadership qualification, all of which are delivered with the highest quality teaching. Our Sixth Form students leave us as articulate young people who are fully prepared for both higher education and the working world.

We aim to instil in each and every student a set of attributes, skills and values that will enable them to make informed choices, be responsible and principled citizens, enjoy career success and achieve personal fulfilment. It matters to us that our students not only enjoy academic studies but they have fun, forging strong friendships that will sustain them through their adult lives. Our girls are enterprising, friendly and ambitious and they have wonderful purpose and energy. Our colleagues are dedicated, creative and talented. It is a privilege to lead this remarkable school.
We are proud to excel as a high achieving and successful school, but we are not complacent, there are always things that we can improve upon. We value our communications with parents and I do hope that you will want to come and experience the unique atmosphere of St Albans Girls’ School for yourself. We would be delighted to welcome you anytime that you may wish to visit us.
