Love of Learning
Aim: To nurture a love of learning, and to develop fully every child’s academic potential.
Through challenging, stimulating and creative teaching we aim to nurture the ability to think critically, creatively and flexibly, to work both independently and collaboratively, to be self-motivated and to persevere, and thereby to achieve high levels of scholarship while developing a lifelong love of learning.
Aim: To encourage all children to discover and develop their own excellence by participating in the widest range of challenging activities.
We aim to encourage exploration, discover talent, nurture interest, and inspire achievement across the full range of creative, aesthetic, sporting and academic domains. We place great emphasis on activities which bring out the best in children.
To develop confidence and good speech we encourage children to give presentations in class and in assembly, and pupils make speeches at Sports Days and other public events. Drama, stage work and poetry recitation feature highly in our pupils’ school lives, and all will perform to parents regularly. Musical opportunities abound: children from the age of three learn to play instruments (nine instruments are taught by specialist teachers); half of the children in the school have chosen to join one of our three choirs; and children meet regularly to play in ensembles and the orchestra. Sports, particularly team games, play a key part of the weekly routine and promote physical health as well as developing a spirit of competition and the ability to work together. Participation in sport is very high indeed, and keen children can represent St. Helen’s College in our (usually very successful) teams in a wide range of sports.
We offer children four residential trips, a summer school, many day outings, and a very wide range of co-curricular activities so that children have a variety of opportunities to discover and develop their strengths, and to enrich their learning.
Aim: To instil traditional Christian values and to nurture strength of character, so that the children will be ready to face, with integrity and confidence, the many challenges of adult life.
We aim to instil core Christian values, to teach mindful self-awareness, to inspire virtue, confidence, imagination and versatility, and thereby to nurture confident, compassionate, creative, communicative, self-aware, adaptable citizens and leaders of the future.
