Partners in learning, the community and beyond...

A clear, strong ethos of social responsibility lies at the heart of STAHS. Our engagement with and contribution to St Albans and the wider Hertfordshire communities is at the centre of everything we do. Our vision to ‘deliver a transformational experience which educates young people for lives of consequence’ is deliberately broad and is not limited to our own pupils. 

We make a positive impact on our community in many ways, from being a responsible and ethical local employer to providing local schools and community groups with access to our facilities, to our community partnerships and charitable activities. Our reach is broad and we are deeply committed to helping everyoneand particularly young people, in St Albans and the surrounding areas live happy, successful lives unhindered by socioeconomic, geographical, personal or other barriers to social inclusion and mobility. 

STAHS works with a wide range of partners to support raising aspirations across both the independent and maintained sectors for the benefit of the individual pupils involved and to improve outcomes and opportunities for all. Whether helping children develop a lifelong love of science in Luton’s primary schools, working on effective revision strategies with IntoUniversity students, sharing Mandarin lessonsour Design and Technology staff mobilising to produce hundreds of visors for the NHSvolunteering locally, our students and staff learn, share and grow so much. They see things differently, make productive and illuminating connections and forge friendships. Our partnerships build productive links and widen the perspectives of everyone involved. 

We believe wholeheartedly that engaging in meaningful partnerships produces extraordinary mutual benefits, and we will continue to encourage as many young people as possible to join with us in the great adventure of learning.
