WELCOMING PUPILS: Pioneer girls make history at St Albans school

 Published on: 13th April 2021   |   By: Kelly Pells   |   Category: Uncategorized

St Columba’s College in St Albans has welcomed its first female pupils in its 82-year history.

After announcing the move to co-education last summer, the first girls have now been welcomed to the Reception class.

From September this year, the school will also welcome girls into Years 1, 2 and 12, with the plan to eventually provide a Catholic education to boys and girls aged 4 to 18.

The school will become the only co-educational 4-18 independent school in St Albans.

Since the announcement was made, the move has reportedly seen the school’s admissions team receive a record number of enquiries from interested families.

Head of the Prep School, Mr Richard McCann, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to open a new and exciting chapter at St Columba’s College. We know that our values and ethos are equally applicable to boys and girls, and that we will continue to provide an outstanding holistic education that gears every child up for the skills that are needed in the future. Our first pioneer girls have settled in brilliantly and we look forward to welcoming many more.”
