About St Albans High School

St Albans High School for Girls is a selective, independent day school for girls aged 4 – 18 years, which is affiliated to the Church of England and takes girls of all faiths or none. There are approximately 310 pupils in the Preparatory School with 480 in the Senior School and 160 Sixth Formers.

Founded in 1889, the High School has close links with the Diocese of St Albans through the Bishop, who is Visitor to the School, and the Dean, who is honorary Vice-Chair of the Governing Body. The High School moved from its original site on Holywell Hill to its current location on Townsend Avenue in 1908. The Preparatory School took up residence at Wheathampstead House in 2003.

Founders’ Day is the School’s annual celebration of its beginnings. Old Girls, Governors and other members of the school community are invited to a dedicated service in the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban to commemorate the Founders with current students and staff.

Address : Townsend Avenue St Albans Hertfordshire AL1 3SJ
