Students with their teacher

Headmaster’s Welcome

St Hilda’s is special.  We seek to and inspire all who enter its doors and nurture life-long learners.  It has unique character and provides a successful blend of challenge and adventure.  It is a school that radiates happiness, warmth and belonging, all qualities of a genuine family community.

For me, our banner slogan – caring, curious and confident – summarises our vision.  In all we do, St Hilda’s mission is to provide an outstanding education and a holistic, rounded learning experience for all.  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 optimised, accessible to everyone and, most importantly, fun.

We are proud of our academic success and our pupils are well-prepared in gaining first-choice places at a wide range of prestigious senior schools, with a range of scholarships achieved each year.  We nurture each pupil’s individuality, developing talent and ability to the full, equipping them with a wide range of life skills to take them through the years ahead.

In a world where relentless pressure can cause huge anxiety, St Hilda’s is an inclusive and welcoming community with wellbeing at its heart.  Our top priority is to ensure our pupils are thriving and happy, enabling them to develop resilience in our fast-changing world.

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