Prospective parents often ask us for a definition of the St Hilda’s USP. This is summed up in our strapline ‘Caring, Curious and Confident’ which is quantified in our daily aim to ensure that our pupils can access as broad a range of learning experiences as possible whilst developing resilience for our fast-changing world is achieved within a safe, caring and family atmosphere where the needs of each and every pupil are attended to.

St Hilda’s has been part of the Harpenden community for 130 years and our pupils receive a first-class education in a family atmosphere where every day provides rigour, breadth and fun. In a world where relentless pressure can cause huge anxiety for the rising generation of our society, our mission at St Hilda’s is to ensure that our pupils can develop self-confidence and self-worth as paramount aims. This is summed up by these spontaneous comments of appreciation from parents whose pupils are at the beginning, middle and end of their St Hilda’s careers:

‘If the pursuit of happiness is a life ideal, one only has to witness the arrival of the children each morning to see that you have achieved that so brilliantly. You have opened the door to the world of education and have shown your pupils what an amazing

and exciting place that can be.’

‘Your amazing staff have encouraged and inspired our child into a confident spirited individual once more. I cannot thank you enough.’

Early Years, where pupils can start from two and a half, provides a fabulous learning environment – including specialist sport, music, phonics and French - and a terrific grounding, building confidence and inspiring our pupils to develop a ‘can do’ attitude, whilst giving them an academically stimulating experience that links seamlessly into the rest of the School.

At the other end of their St Hilda’s journey, our girls advance to Senior School well-prepared for the next stage of their education and life beyond. This year all pupils have gained a place at their first choice of school and amassed a range of scholarships. Whether pursuing academic excellence or encouraging blossoming creativity inside and outside through the creative arts, aiming for your zenith in sporting endeavour or increasing your confidence amongst a caring, family atmosphere, St Hilda’s has something for everyone.
