We are a selective, independent day school for girls aged 4 to 18 years, which is affiliated to the Church of England. The younger girls enjoy the rural surroundings of our Preparatory School in the delightful village of Wheathampstead, just three miles from St Albans, with those from Year 7 upwards based at the Senior School in the heart of this historic city. Founded in 1889, the School has close links with the Diocese of St Albans through the Bishop, who is Visitor to the School, and the Dean, who is honorary vice-Chair of the Governing Body. The teachings of the Christian church inform our work here, but we are by no means exclusively Anglican and we welcome girls of all or no faiths into our community. As a pupil at our school, your daughter will be encouraged in the pursuit of individual excellence. She will receive the stimulus and support to develop her academic abilities to the full, to explore and participate in a wide range of activities and to recognise and celebrate her talents and achievements. We look forward to hearing from you and can assure you that, whether you choose to visit us on one of our Open Days or would prefer to come and see us in the course of a working day, you will be most welcome.

Pro Corda Competition - The Li String Quartet (May, Rosie, Anna and Alice) performed the Scherzo from Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet in A minor Opus 11 in the preliminary round held at Felsted School and won through to the semi-final held on Wednesday at St Helen’s School in Abingdon. On both occasions the girls played with panache and flair. The adjudicators commented on their excellent tuning and how they managed to keep the tempo. The enthusiasm of the girls was palpable. In addition, the Huggett String Quartet played Beethoven beautifully at the SE Schools' Chamber Competition on 1 March.
