At St Hilda’s, we successfully combine traditional values with a challenging, progressive curriculum. It is easy to identify the traditional values: pupils smile at visitors, jump to open doors for adults, play hop-scotch and skipping in the playground and display natural respect for their teachers and one another. But the traditional values of academic excellence are supported & strengthened by an advanced, forward thinking curriculum, specifically designed to give pupils the highly complex range of skills they will need to succeed in the modern world.
As rapid technological advances dramatically shape society and as geographical boundaries ‘virtually’ fall away, children must be encouraged to problem solve, to think critically and laterally, and to embrace learning as a lifelong joy. We are committed to promoting individual learning styles, independent thinking skills and co-operative learning; all within a happy, healthy and deeply nurturing environment.
