A very warm welcome to our website, which offers a broad flavour of all that takes place in our busy and vibrant School.

Prospective parents often ask for a definition of our USP and this is, for me, encapsulated in our banner slogan nurturing the individual.  This is quantified in our daily aim to ensure that our pupils can access as broad a range of learning experiences as possible, developing resilience for our fast-changing world and all within a safe, caring and family atmosphere where the needs of each and every pupil are attended to.

St Hilda’s has been part of the Harpenden community for over 125 years and our pupils receive a first-class education.  Academic rigour, mixed with carefully differentiated and independent learning and creativity, allow every pupil to maximise their potential.
