About Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School
Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School (ALHCS) is a mixed non-denominational secondary school with sixth form situated across two campuses in The Valley area of the British-owned Caribbean island of Anguilla. It is a state school with English language tuition. A larger than average size for a school of its type, the school has a school roll of 1,154 secondary school and sixth form students between the ages of 12-19. Standardised tests result in Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) and School Based Assessment (SBA) qualifications.
The school has its origins in the Valley Secondary School, which opened in 1953. Following the introduction of comprehensive education in 1986, the school name was changed to its current name, named after Mrs Albena Lake Hodge, the headteacher of the school who also served as Minister for Education.

Government of Anguilla
“Opportunities have been expanded at ALHCS to enable students to maximise their learning. A fairly wide range of subjects is provided, some as core subjects, and others as options from which students can choose in the higher forms. There has been some expansion of programmes in the Learning Centre and at W.I.S.E. in an effort to better cater to the differing needs of students, as the school strives to provide opportunities for students to achieve at their highest potential.”
