How to Apply | Girls' School | Haberdashers' Girls' School

Founded in 1875 and currently residing in Elstree, the school is committed to maintaining the highest standards in education. We aim to provide a dynamic, holistic educational experience for pupils aged 4 to 18. Supported by our extensive co-curricular programme, pupils can explore individual interests and passions in and beyond the classroom.

Situated in the leafy, idyllic, 100-acre campus in Hertfordshire, just outside of London, Habs shares its wonderful campus with Haberdashers’ Boys’ School. This fantastic opportunity of sharing such a large space with Habs Boys means that the school can also offer the best of single-sex education in a unique co-educational environment. From September 2022, every Sixth Former will be taught at least one subject in a mixed-gender class.

It is the school’s belief that it has the largest coach network of any school in the UK. With 150 stops, spanning a 30-mile radius for both morning and return journeys, it allows pupils from both  Habs Girls and Habs Boys from far and wide to benefit from a Haberdashers’ education.
