St Albans Girls’ School is a single sex comprehensive school in St Albans for girls aged 11-18. The Sixth Form is co-educational.
We are a high achieving specialist Business and Enterprise Academy, specialising in educating girls. Girls are admitted at the age of 11+ without reference to ability or aptitude using the criteria below. The main principle of admission to St Albans Girls' School is to maintain the integrity of the character of the school providing a superb breadth of learning opportunities for young people in the community of St Albans. Applications are welcome from parents whose children are likely to make a full and committed contribution to the life of the school, and to benefit from the extensive additional facilities and opportunities.
The Published Admissions Number (PAN) for Year 7 in September 2022 will be 240. The Published Admission Number for current Years 7, 8 & 9 is 240; Years 10 & 11 is 210.

Open Evening 2022
Our 2022 Open Evening is planned for Thursday 6 October from 4pm to 7pm. You do not need to reserve a place, but we ask that only Year 5 and Year 6 students attend with parents/carers.
In addition, to enable you to enjoy timely access around the whole school, the Headteacher’s speech, including information from our current students, is recorded and will be available online for you to view in your own time.
We are again extending our Open Mornings so that you have more of an opportunity to meet us during the school day, booking details will be available on our website at the beginning of the Autumn Term. They will include a tour of the school and a question and answer session with a member of our Senior Leadership Team and will last approximately an hour. In order to accommodate the large number of requests to visit us, we ask that only Year 6 students and one parent/carer attend these visits.
Virtual Presentations from 2021
We were saddened that we were not able to welcome visitors to our normal Open Evening last year. In its place we recorded our Head Teacher's Welcome Speech which we invite you to listen to below, hear from Students and watch our promotional video. We hope this will give you flavour of our school, its community and facilities.
We hope to welcome you sometime in the future. If you would like more information please contact Reception on 01727 853134.
