Preparing for a successful future...
"In the Upper School (7-11years) the girls deepen their love for learning and are taught 'how' to think, within lively, engaging lessons, through a range of thinking skills strategies. Teachers promote independent learning to develop enquiring minds that are resilient and resourceful, and pupils take a pride - not only in their final achievements - but in the processes and experiences that take them there. We encourage the girls to take risks in their learning in order to build ‘grit’, and to reflect thoughtfully and constructively as they aim to become their very best selves.
At St Hilda’s we believe that a happy child is a child who learns and the highest level of pastoral care underpins everything we do in order to ensure that the girls are nurtured, supported and understood as individuals. When it is time to move on to senior school, the girls are incredibly well prepared to take the next step in their educational journey, both emotionally and academically.
Good manners, caring for friends and high standards of behaviour are encouraged and rewarded. Form 6 girls are given the extra responsibilities of becoming Prefects, House/Sports Captains and Monitors and through this, they become good role models for younger pupils.
There are many extra-curricular activities on offer exploring all areas of the curriculum including sports clubs, ICT, art, Spanish and drama. Some of which take place during the school day and others after school, such as ballet lessons. We are also able to offer individual music lessons including piano, violin, cello and woodwind."
