St Albans School is an independent school in the city of St Albans in Hertfordshire, in the East of England. Entry before Sixth Form is for boys only, but the Sixth Form has been co-educational since 1989. Founded in 948 by Wulsin (Abbot Ulsinus), St Albans School is not only the oldest school in Hertfordshire but also one of the oldest in the world. Nicholas Carlisle, in 1818, described the school as "of very ancient origin, and of great celebrity" and the Good Schools Guide describes St Albans as a "traditional public school, with a rich history".

The current headmaster is Mr Andrew Grant MA FRSA. He has been head since 1993.

Famous quotes containing the word school:

    And Guidobaldo, when he made
    That grammar school of courtesies
    Where wit and beauty learned their trade
    Upon Urbino’s windy hill,
    Had sent no runners to and fro
    That he might learn the shepherds’ will.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
