Moving on to Senior School - St Albans High School for Girls



STAHS is a through-school offering education from the ages of 4 to 18. Whether joining in Pre-Prep, Year 7 or Year 12, parents choose us because of the careful balance of pastoral care and support with outstanding teaching and learning.

Our pastoral structure, approach to digital learning and overall curriculum is a journey from Reception to Year 13, with each stage building on previous learning. Moving on from the leafy haven of Prep, as pupils become teenagers they enjoy the buzzing, city school environment of STAHS Senior School.

At the end of Year 6, nearly all Prep pupils are granted automatic admission into Year 7 at STAHS Senior School without the need for admission assessment. In the few instances where the Senior School would not be a good fit, the Head of Prep will alert parents in Year 5 and work closely with them to find alternative schools. Once in Senior School, the majority of pupils stay with us for Sixth Form.
