Central Principles and School Aims

St Hilda’s School is an independent school for girls from rising 3 to 11 years. Although a girls’ school, St Hilda’s does take boys into the Nursery setting.

At St Hilda’s School, we welcome all children irrespective of race, religion, culture or disability.

Our aim is to achieve the highest standard of education in a happy, safe and purposeful working environment, instilling in all pupils a love of learning, independent thinking and good manners.

We strive to nurture each child’s individuality, developing talent and ability to the full.
