CISC member, St Columba’s College in St Albans, has become a co-educational school, after girls started in Reception, Prep 1, Prep 2 and the Lower Sixth on Monday 6 September.
The independent Catholic day school announced its move to co-education last year and welcomed its first girls into Reception back in January. Girls will also join St Columba’s in Form 1 (Year 7) from September 2022.
Headmaster David Buxton said: “This is a landmark day for St Columba’s College as we open our co-educational Prep School and Sixth Form. We have welcomed more than 20 young women into the Lower Sixth for the next stage of their educational journey.
“They join the new and returning girls in the Lower Prep as we continue our move to full co-education for ages 4-18.”
