Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School/Haberdashers' Aske's School for Girls

Habs Boys 1

Habs Girls2

Both the boys' and girls' school lie on a site in Elstree, Hertfordshire. The boys' school has entry points at 5+, 7+, 11+, 13+ and 16+. Haberdashers' Aske's School for Girls admits pupils at 4+, 5+, 7+, 11+ and 16+.

The schools' academic rigour is reflected in exam results. Almost 80 per cent of A-Level grades were an A or A* at the boys' school in 2013. Habs Girls recorded over 80 per cent of A-Level grades at the same level. Both regularly send large numbers to Oxbridge.

Alumni for Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School include actor Sacha Baron Cohen, Little Britain star Matt Lucas and broadcaster Alan Whicker. Labour MP Luciana Berger and radio broadcaster Charlotte Green are among the girls' school's former pupils.
