St Albans Education Group - St Albans High School for Girls

St Albans Education Group

We are pleased to announce that from September 2024, STAHS will merge with Stormont School to become the St Albans Education Group.

Stormont School is a leading girls’ prep school in Potters Bar and STAHS has long been an 11+ destination of choice for Stormont leavers. This merger provides an exciting opportunity to further strengthen the already close ties between the two schools through a more formal partnership. The group will include STAHS Senior School, STAHS Prep School and Stormont School and whilst the individuality and character of each of these schools will continue to be celebrated and developed, the merger of the schools will provide strength, stability and opportunity for all.

We have prepared a set of FAQs, available below, to address the most common questions, and we are happy to answer any additional questions if contacted directly.

The STAHS vision to develop happy, resilient young people who will embrace opportunities and lead lives of consequence remains unchanged, as do our aims and values. We look forward to working closely with Stormont School in the coming years to ensure that all schools within the group provide outstanding opportunities and an exceptional education for every pupil and to an exciting new chapter in STAHS’s history.

We are happy to help with any other questions, please contact us by emailing
