St. Hilda's Independent Day School for Boys aged 3 to 11 and Girls aged 3 to 16

An open letter from the Headmistress

At the School we aim to provide our students with the maximum opportunity for academic success, while at the same time encouraging the students to develop their own interests, and become confident and dynamic young people.

St Hilda's has a tradition of showing care and commitment to those around us and so we help our pupils foster a respect for themselves, others within the school and in the wider world and we are proud of the support that we give to the local community and beyond. If you like what you see on our web site, come and visit us. I will be happy to show you round and let you see for yourselves the special qualities that our School has.

If you then decide to join us, admission could not be simpler. Once we receive the completed application form, and before a place is offered, your daughter will be invited to join us for a day. This will give her a chance to meet her new classmates, and will give us a chance to assess her ability. Following her day with us, in most cases we then offer your daughter a place at the School. If your daughter is not joining us immediately, you will be sent further information during the half term before she starts with us. This will contain information on school routine and a Pupil Details Form.

I hope you enjoy looking round our web site and finding out about us.

Mrs Susan O'Riordan


Early Years

St. Hilda's School has two Reception classes: Reception 1 for pupils aged 3 to 4, and Reception 2 for pupils aged 4—5.

Both classes follow the government Early Learning Goals and are inspected by Ofsted. The pupils' curriculum is enriched by activities including drama, cooking, music and regular trips to places of local interest. Pupils in Reception 1 may attend school from as little as two sessions a week up to full time.

Infant and Junior Schools

From Grade 1 to Grade 6, all pupils follow the National Curriculum in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT. They also study history, geography, music, drama, art & design, PE, RE and, from Grade 3, French.

Pupils are taught most subjects by their Form Teacher so that they are able to build up a good working relationship with them, and their pastoral care can be closely monitored. In the Junior School there are specialist teachers in some subjects. Pupils sit the government SAT tests at the end of Grades 2 and 6. Pupils are also prepared for the 11+ Selection Test in which we are always successful. If required, we also prepare pupils for Common Entrance.

Senior School

All pupils follow the
National Curriculum in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT. They also study history, geography, French, German, RE, PE, music, art & design and textiles. Their curriculum is supported by relevant school trips each year to such places as the theatre and places of historical interest. Pupils sit the government SAT tests at the end of Grade 9.

All pupils sit GCSEs in the following subjects: English, English Literature, Mathematics, French or German and Science (single award). They may then choose up to a further four examination subjects from option groups that currently contain the following: art & design, ICT, history, geography, a second foreign language, textiles, science (double award) and PE. Pupils also follow courses in music, Life Skills and PE.


St Hilda's School offers a wide range of extra activities operating during school breaks and before and after school.

  • There are two thriving drama clubs for pupils from Grade 1 upwards which meet each week and stage productions twice a year. Diction is also available, with many of the pupils achieving success in local festivals and LAMDA public examinations.
  • PE clubs, and competitions with other schools, offer a range of sporting opportunities. These include netball, cross-country running, rounders and athletics.
  • Infant and Junior pupils have the opportunity to attend ballet lessons and sit for recognised examinations.
  • Extra tuition is offered in piano, singing, and more advanced recorder playing.
  • Friends of St. Hilda's School (F.O.S.H.) is our parents association. They meet regularly and organise a wide range of activities for both pupils and parents, and raise extra funds for the school.
  • St. Hilda's girls are also aware of the needs of those less fortunate than themselves and currently sponsor Pamma, a young boy in India. Other charities, particularly local organisations, are regularly supported.
