Welcome to St Albans Girls' School
Thank you for expressing an interest in coming to work with us at St Albans Girls’ School. Working at STAGS is exceptionally rewarding. Our students make outstanding progress and leave school with excellent qualifications and the self-belief to help them to build a successful future. Our expectations are high for both students and staff and we all strive to continually improve and develop our practice. Colleagues embrace the community ethos at STAGS and we are committed to promoting and supporting high quality professional development. As a result, colleagues have a wealth of opportunities to develop their careers, with many promoted internally.
As a school we look beyond Outstanding, developing a world class standard so that the community values and character of our young people embrace the challenges and opportunities of life. Unlocking talent and potential, raising aspiration and self-belief is the corner stone to success. Whether ‘tweaking to transform’ or through ‘productive tinkering’ our curriculum comes alive with the varied and active learning, delivered by highly skilled teachers and it is this focus on a continually learning and developing school community at all levels which ensures our students seize the opportunity to succeed, to challenge views and develop their own values. Our additional extra-curricular activities, student leadership opportunities and focus on the belief that every child really does matter, ensure that our aims are acted upon each day.
At STAGS, we are proud to excel in all that we do in a consistent manner; we hold strong values and have very high expectations. Achievements and success occur through highly reflective, carefully planned strategies and leadership is well distributed and ambitious to move the school forward – we are restless leaders, deeply interested in doing better tomorrow than we did today. It is the responsibility of everyone in our school community to continuously review progress, celebrate success and drive standards forward.
