Our Ethos | St Helen's

We believe in providing an exceptional all-round education from Nursery to Year 13, and to develop young women through excellent academic teaching and by providing vibrant and exciting opportunities to extend their horizons, making the most of our first-class facilities.

We cherish the enduring values of the School, but also embrace innovation. By providing our pupils with the opportunities and the skills necessary to succeed, they will become confident and independent young women who are fully prepared to make their mark on the world around them.

Our Aims are:

  • To provide each and every girl with the opportunity and means to achieve academic excellence by promoting intellectual curiosity, excitement and ambition;
  • To provide our pupils with the personal skills, emotional resilience and the confidence to achieve their full potential through a varied, rich and challenging co-curricular programme;
  • To know, value and respect all girls as individuals so as to best support them on their journey through the School;
  • To ensure that the School, the girls, and the staff play a full and active part in the local, national and global community.

Through the successful achievement of these aims, a St Helen’s girl becomes one who is intellectually curious, an independent and creative thinker who is excited by learning and the opportunity to excel. She has both the confidence to lead others and the adaptability to be a supportive team player.  She has integrity, celebrates diversity, respects others and uses her talents, energy and enthusiasm to benefit the community whilst becoming an inspirational leader of tomorrow.
