• St Albans High School for Girls
St Albans High School for Girls (STAHS), is an independent day school for girls. At Prep School, based in the village of Wheathampstead amongst fields and woodland, girls have the opportunity to get muddy, to play, to develop a passion for learning and fun. The Senior School in St Albans is a short train ride from London and has around 1,040 students. Admission is selective, by interview and exam to identify inventive thinkers. Girls may learn best in an all-girls’ environment, so they focus on fostering their intellectual and social confidence, offering exciting academic and co-curricular opportunities to prepare them for university and beyond.

Kingshott School is set on the outskirts of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, and provides an outstanding co-educational learning experience for children aged three to 13.
At Kingshott, learning is more than simply an accumulation of information and facts. If that were so, school would be boring and life at Kingshott is anything but boring! It is exciting, it is varied and it is fun. They want the children to be happy and achieve their potential; to be the best they can be.
Since 2004, Kingshott has made major improvements to the facilities, embracing the idea that innovation and tradition go hand in hand. Most recently, it opened a multimillion pound Sports and Drama Hall. This huge multipurpose space has tiered seating for up to 400 people and a purpose built audio visual suite along with an additional studio space.
They would love to show you round and answer any questions you may have. Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01462 432009 and asking for the admissions team
