St Albans School is a high achieving, independent day school in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
With 850 pupils taught by over 70 staff, St Albans School’s values and ethos are underpinned by its established traditions, tracing its history back to 948 A.D. Located in the centre of St Albans, next to the Abbey and overlooking the site of the Roman city of Verulamium, the School offers a wide range of opportunities for development, with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and service to the community. Boys enter the School at 11, 13 and 16 and girls join at 16; in the Sixth Form, pupils can take advantage of a wide range of A level subjects and co-curricular activities. Each child is known and valued as an individual and the School works in partnership with parents for the fulfilment of their child’s potential. The School aims to foster the development of talent and responsibility, to enable each child to become the best that they can be. The range of GCSEs is extensive and academic standards are high, resulting in excellent exam results at all levels. In 2016, A level results were 94% at A*-B and A* and A grades were at 66%. St Albans School’s students have an outstanding and solid record of success in consistently gaining admission to the UK’s top universities.
