St Albans Girls’ School is a place to thrive. We provide an ambitious, broad and balanced curriculum that is rich in knowledge and opportunity designed to enable all students to achieve their potential.
At the heart of our curriculum is the excellent support of our learners, which ensures not only academic success but personal development of the individual. The curriculum is planned to ensure that it is engaging, enjoyable and promotes a love of learning. The curriculum encourages each student to develop their intellectual, physical and personal qualities, to follow their passion and reach their potential. This enables each student to appreciate their cultural heritage and the needs and opportunities of the modern world.

Prepare our students for the next stage of their education and training
Our curriculum is subject to constant review to keep abreast of the latest educational research and development, in conjunction with a consistent focus on the National Curriculum.
