Headteacher’s Welcome

At St Helena School, our desire is to provide exciting opportunities, tailored for our young people.  Through collective learning, we create a legacy for those who follow.

Working with parents, Governors and wider partners, enables every student to be known, contribute to our community and fulfil their ambitions.  We have the privilege and great responsibility to develop tolerant, respectful citizens who will leave us with the tools to be a success and make the world a better place.

The importance of educating the whole child is reflected in our rich and broad extra-curricular offer.  We provide opportunity to craft life-long memories.  Students are encouraged to take part in trips, visits and activities throughout their time with us to feed cultural, sporting and creative appetites.

A prospectus can only give you a flavour of life at St Helena School.  We welcome you to visit our school, to see our teaching facilities, and more importantly, to feel the inclusive, vibrant and purposeful culture our young people create.
