St Albans School
|Head's Name:||Jonathan Gillespie|
St Albans School is an independent school in St Albans, Hertfordshire. It is one of the most ancient educational foundations in Europe. In this place, for over a thousand years, young people have been achieving academic distinction, learning civilised and humane values and developing their personality and character to allow them to play a leading role in the wider world.
St Albans is an independent academic day school offering a first rate education in an environment rich in opportunities. Boys enter the School at 11, 13 and 16, girls at 16. There are approximately 820 pupils, taught by over 70 staff. This ratio allows each child to be known and valued as an individual and the School works in partnership with parents for the fulfilment of their children’s potential.
The School is sited in the historic centre of St Albans, opposite the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, with which it has had a long association. The School is not a religious foundation, however, and welcomes pupils of all faiths or none. The Abbey and School are built on a hillside which slopes down to Verulamium Park, with its fields, sports pitches, lakes and Roman remains.
