St Albans High School Prep

Girls (4 - 11)

About the school

The Prep School is an exciting place to grow and learn at the start of the fourteen years that your daughter will spend at St Albans High School. With our 18 acres of field and woodland, every child has the opportunity to get muddy in the outdoors, to play, develop their passion for learning and have fun. Visitors are struck by the confidence of our girls as they work alongside friends in the classroom, grappling with difficult maths problems or writing and sharing stories with each other. We are a caring community where every child is valued and understood. We meet as a community daily when our girls sing lustily and reflect on abiding values before they embark upon the day’s learning adventure. Whether coding, experimenting in science, performing a French play or creating an Anglo Saxon village, our girls embrace their learning and you will be impressed by their infectious enthusiasm.

I invite you to come and see for yourself what the Prep has to offer and look forward to welcoming you.

Admissions Process

Entry 4+

We understand how young your child is when she meets us for 4+ testing, and we’re sensitive to her needs. We work with her in a comfortable environment surrounded by the kinds of activities and toys that she may have grown accustomed to in a nursery class. By talking with your daughter, sharing activities and stories and working with her on one-to-one tasks, we can gain an insight into whether the Prep would be a good fit for her. Your daughter will spend a little over an hour with us and will feel relaxed and at ease with our welcoming staff.

The entry tests take place in January of the academic year that your child wishes to start school. If you’d like to know more or to arrange a visit to the school with your daughter, please contact the Registrar, Rosemary Colman on 01727 792509.
