Welcome to St. Hilda's School

"A warm welcome to St Hilda’s School, a combined independent nursery and school for boys aged 0 - 7 and girls aged 0 - 11. While this website will give you an insight into our thriving community, nothing beats coming to see us for yourself.

"Please do attend one of our open days or make an appointment to be shown around the school on a date more convenient to you. When you see the school in action you will be able to appreciate fully why our children are doing so well and are confident and happy in their endeavours.

“We believe that our school provides a wonderful and secure learning environment that will leave your child with positive childhood memories. We nurture each child and develop their individual talents, firmly believing that they deserve the very best start in life and that a happy childhood is crucial. We achieve this by:

  • Emphasising mutual respect
  •  Ensuring that all children feel happy, confident and secure in their environment
  • Positive reinforcement and promotion of high levels of politeness and academic standards
  • Giving all children access to a broad and balanced curriculum
  • Providing small class sizes so that all children receive the attention they need.

“We have a long and enviable reputation of achievement – our pupils make good progress and enjoy learning. I am confident that St Hilda’s will give your child the right start in life in a flourishing, stimulating and safe environment.”


Mrs Jo Sharpe


St Hilda's Campus & Facilities

The school occupies a picturesque and beautiful Grade ii listed former convent in the centre of Horbury, close to Junctions 40 and 41 of the M1. Originally founded in 1949 by the Community of St Peter’s Convent, it became part of the Silcoates School Foundation in 1993. The school retains its magnificent Chapel, which has been preserved from the days when the St Peter’s nuns occupied the building.


St Hilda’s is spacious and generously resourced school, blessed with both a good location and abundance of space. It has its own gymnasium, purpose-built children’s kitchen, well-stocked library, science/language lab, art room and an information technology room with controlled internet access. Additional facilities include an out-of-school care room, dining hall and staff facilities.


Outside, the children benefit from an all weather surface, a hard surface court area, playing fields, maintained gardens, a 0 – 3 years play area and a play area for children in Reception class and Form I.


We have the added advantage of being able to use the sporting facilities at Silcoates School, including its extensive playing fields and heated indoor swimming pool. St Hilda’s also takes advantage of Silcoates musical expertise, with pupils able to be taught an instrument of their choice by Silcoates’ staff.
