St Helena School is an 11 to 16, mixed comprehensive school with specialist status as an Arts and Media College. We have over 1000 students with a wide range of abilities. Since becoming Headteacher I have set students the “St Helena Challenge” - “Always do your best!”
This means we expect students to do their best in everything they do all day, every day. We all have different abilities in the tasks we undertake and we do realise that not every child can achieve the same level, no matter how well they are taught. However, by always doing your best and making that your aim, then being successful will become a habit.
We want you to compete. We want you to compete against other people, where it is fair and appropriate to do so. Most importantly, we want you to constantly compete with yourself. We want you to be better than yesterday; better than last month; better than last year. If you do this on a daily basis, then, when challenges arise, you will be prepared.
Our task is to support you in the St Helena Challenge — are you up to it?
