Welcome to

St Albans Girls' School


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 Admission Number (PAN) for Year 7 in September 2020 is 240.  The published admission number for the current Year 7 is 240; Years 8 - 11 is 210.
