"If the pursuit of happiness is a life ideal, one only has to witness the arrival of the children each morning to see that you have achieved that so brilliantly.  You have opened the door to the world of education and have shown your pupils what an amazing and exciting place that can be."

"When our daughter joined in Form II, the settling-in process was exemplary and she was happy within days. Her teacher even went into the playground at lunchtime and break to keep a watchful eye and ensure she had friends to play with – thank you."

"We feel that the breadth of subjects taught at St Hilda’s together with the wide range of music tuition, sports and other activities keeps school life interesting and stimulating."

Current parent

"Far from being the little princesses that some people think is a typical private school girl, St Hilda’s encourages independence and strength of character. Pinning down and picking up live crabs on the Form V residential trip, joining muddy cross-country races, outdoor swimming in the School pool, and building dens out of tree branches on the local Nicky Line. We love the no-nonsense and refreshingly competitive attitude to girls’ sport."

Current parent

"We appreciate the accessibility of all the teachers in person or by email and having the Headmaster physically there at the school gate at drop off and pick up. We have truly found that our concerns and requests have always been dealt with in a fair, responsive and positive manner."
