Based in leafy Elstree, and sharing some facilities with the next door boys’ school, Habs’ Girls’ School is a school that challenges girls to excel in all that they do.


Languages are a strength and emphasized: Spanish from Reception, French from Year 1 and German from Year 3. Japanese is also an extra-curricular option. Well-equipped science labs ensure that girls have the chance to do lots of practical and investigative work.


The school prides itself on its strong relationships with parents through the St Catherine’s Guild, which supports and engenders partnerships with parents. At the Junior School, parents are invited to curriculum evenings, so they can learn about the school’s approach to certain subjects and how they can best support their girls at home.

Main points of entry to Habs’ School for Girls are at 4+ and 11+ (for the main school). However, there is a small intake of up to 10 girls at 7+, for which about 60 girls apply.

Open Days/Visits
