St Hilda’s has transformed my daughter into a confident, positive and mature young lady.  This wonderful school has allowed her to find out where her strengths lie and helped her develop them.  She has found a love for music, drama and art as well as achieving high standards in her academic work.  I cannot speak more highly of St Hilda’s and would highly recommend it.

Our daughter has been at St Hilda’s since nursery and we couldn’t be happier. The school has provided the ideal blend of academic excellence, sporting activity and pastoral care. The school focuses on developing well-rounded individuals and a conversation with any of the senior girls in the school shows how well this emphasis works.

We can’t rate St Hilda’s highly enough. Our daughter has attended the school since nursery and is now in Year 3. She is thriving at the school and absolutely loves it. The staff are so nurturing and genuinely care about the girls they teach. Our daughter’s confidence is growing year on year and we see continuous academic progress. We would recommend the school to anyone.

“SHS is a very special school.  I believe that the school is trying to continuously improve its offering which is both a great strategy as well as being essential.  I like the addition of the parents’ forum to provide a more direct channel to share views with the leadership team.”
