HEADMASTER’S WELCOME TO

ST ALBANS SCHOOL

A School that is proud of its long and distinguished history, yet one whose prime focus is the needs of its students for the world of the future; a School whose pupils achieve outstanding examination results in the most demanding academic subjects and gain entry to the leading universities, yet one that believes that a good education comprises so much more than examination grades – these are two of the hallmarks of St Albans School.
