Headmaster’s Welcome

St Hilda’s is unique in character and appeal and a special place to educate your child.  I am delighted to welcome you to our website, which offers a broad flavour of all that takes place in our busy and vibrant School.

For me, our banner slogan caring, curious and confident, encapsulates our aims and vision.  In all we do, St Hilda’s seeks to nurture and foster self-belief, self-worth and the pursuit of excellence.  Only when a child feels cared for and secure can they truly realise their potential.  Our caring approach is matched by high expectations and in ensuring that learning is rigorous, accessible to everyone and, most importantly, fun.

We are proud of our academic success and our pupils are well-prepared in gaining places at a wide range of prestigious senior schools.  Our reputation for all-round excellence is seen across a full, vibrant and creative curriculum where our pupils gain a superb range of skills to equip them for their journey beyond, and for life.

In a world where relentless pressure can cause huge anxiety for the rising generation of our society, our mission at St Hilda’s is to ensure that rigour is carefully balanced with equal importance given to their wellbeing and happiness, enabling them to develop resilience for our fast-changing world and all within a safe, family atmosphere.

A parent recently commented that ‘St Hilda’s strikes the balance brilliantly between being caring and nurturing whilst also being challenging.  Our girls are very happy and secure at school which means their brains are open and receptive to learning.  The teachers really get to know the children as individuals and we have found each and every one has done a great job in motivating our child and making learning exciting and fun.  We love the supportive ethos of the school.  The pupils are always overjoyed when one of their classmates achieves something extra special.  We are so pleased we chose St Hilda’s.’

I look forward to meeting you soon and giving you the opportunity to experience the spirit, energy and enjoyment which make St Hilda’s such a special place.
