There is a very strong sense of harmony at St. Helen’s College, embracing children, staff and parents. This strong ‘family’ ethos is nurtured by a culture in which the children are respected, valued and loved.
Staff and pupils enjoy relaxed and friendly but respectful relationships and our low staff turnover means that teachers and children get to know each other well during their years together.
Among the children, lasting friendships are formed and generations of ex-pupils continue to keep in touch with each other and with the school. Standards of courtesy and behaviour are very high and are maintained by modelling and praising rather than by admonishing. Children learn best by example!
At St. Helen’s College, the essence of spirituality is encouraging children to look beyond themselves, to see and appreciate others and the world around them, to reflect on their experiences and to develop gratitude and a sense of wonder about themselves and the world.
Our children are thoughtful and generous and many charitable activities are arranged each year – some by the teachers, many by the pupils themselves – through which the children can demonstrate their strong sense of service and awareness of the needs of others.
St. Helen’s College has a Christian background, but we embrace all faiths and beliefs and welcome children from all traditions. Although assemblies are Christian based, we also celebrate events from other faiths so that children gain an understanding and appreciation of different religions. Assemblies often include moments of stillness when children and teachers are able to become quiet and reflective. This can be a very unifying experience.
Without exception, every child has huge potential and at St. Helen’s College we help our children to fulfil this potential through guidance, encouragement and challenge.
As the children become aware of their growing aptitudes and talents they develop the self-motivation and strength of character which is needed for success. It isn’t always easy and every child is different, so we take the greatest care to guide and support children as individuals, so that all can experience the confidence and fulfilment of success.
We are very proud of our pupils - watching them grow and learn, seeing their talents develop and celebrating their many achievements is hugely rewarding.
