When people first walk into St. Helen’s College, they are struck by the welcoming and peaceful atmosphere that we have created for our children. Our buildings are comfortable, spacious, modern and purpose-built and are equipped with air conditioning and the latest ICT equipment, but the school still maintains a homely, small-school feel.
'The school is a very happy place. Children go in smiling and come out smiling.'

Our setting - on the edge of Court Park in a quiet corner of Hillingdon - is beautiful and very fitting for young children. The park provides a perfect opportunity for exploratory walks, nature lessons and our extensive games programme, as well as a most pleasant setting in which parents can mingle while waiting for their children in the afternoons.
In addition, we have easy access to the excellent local sports facilities at Brunel University and Hillingdon Sports and Leisure Complex which are just a five minute ride by school minibus.
Our greatest strength lies in our staff - a remarkably talented, caring and dedicated team. Our teachers, many of whom are subject specialists, share a passion for education and although we already have high levels of expertise and experience, we are constantly invigorating and renewing the way we teach.
We run regular meetings where teachers share ideas and develop ways to introduce innovation and freshness to the school in order to stimulate learning and we invest in continuous professional development.
The teachers are supported by a highly qualified and very experienced group of classroom assistants. Staff:pupil ratios are high, and the resulting close attention ensures maximal benefit for the children. Right across the staff – teachers, assistants and support staff – there is exceptional teamwork and collegiality, a strong sense of vocation, and a shared passion to provide the highest levels of care and education.
'Teachers are brilliant. The office staff are so incredibly helpful and efficient. Day to day communication is fantastic.'

We are proud of the children at St. Helen’s College. They come from all walks of life, but what they have in common is happiness, confidence, courtesy and a keenness to learn.
St. Helen’s College children are often commended for being well behaved and smartly turned out. We encourage our children to be diligent, respectful, caring, friendly with one another and enthusiastic in whatever they do. We aim to provide them with an environment where they feel motivated and involved and where each, in his or her own way, can experience achievement.
Despite having a mixed ability intake, our children consistently achieve very high academic grades. As a result, we have a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence.
