A Welcome from the Head of the Preparatory School

Welcome to Wheathampstead House, the Preparatory School of St Albans High School for Girls. Our stunning location in 18 acres of grounds gives your daughter the freedom to grow and develop safely in an inspiring setting.

Here she has access to state of the art facilities. She will develop a love of learning and the ability to think independently, to research and analyse - skills that will be important throughout her lifetime. The warm and caring family atmosphere ensures each individual girl is confident and happy.

We foster strong links between home and school so that, with parents, we can ensure the very best educational provision for each girl.

I truly believe that you will find no better preparation for secondary education and life beyond school for your daughter than the education we provide.

I extend a very warm invitation to you and your family to come and visit us. Come and meet the girls and staff who make our school such a special place!

Please contact us at any time to arrange a visit. We look forward to welcoming you.
