We are very proud of our warm and vibrant community of ambitious young people, caring and talented staff and supportive alumni and parents.

St Albans High School (we call it STAHS) is one of the country's leading independent schools, offering a rich and diverse education to 1,150 pupils between the ages of four and 18. We are selective at all points of intake, and we are consistently ranked among the best independent schools in the UK.

Renowned for both exceptional academic provision and extensive co-curricular opportunities, STAHS pupils leave school as happy, confident and well-rounded young people ready to make their mark on the world.

STAHS has two sites, a few miles apart: the Prep School in leafy Wheathampstead and the Senior School in the historic city of St Albans, just 25 minutes from King's Cross/London St Pancras. STAHS is proud to be a truly 'through school', with the majority of Year 6 pupils joining the Senior School for Year 7 and beyond.

Our Prep School of around 330 pupils is a warm and caring community where academic ambition and a real sense of adventure go hand in hand.

It is my privilege to lead a team of outstanding colleagues devoted to preparing the young people in our care to live lives of consequence, making a meaningful impact on the world. We work together in a warm and grounded spirit that is uniquely 'STAHS'. Please do see the Head’s Welcome on our website to find out why STAHS is such a special place.

Mr Mike Bryant, BA (Joint Hons) Nottingham, MA London, FCCT
