Our academic ethos

Students thrive in a culture and curriculum which promotes academic curiosity, develops the scope and depth of knowledge, and broadens intellectual perspectives. They will become confident, tenacious, self-motivated learners who enjoy the challenge of both individual and collective problem solving, and who happily embrace intellectual risks.

They leave St Helen’s with an appreciation of scholarship, well-equipped for life and well-prepared to contribute positively to society. We achieve this through inspiring and challenging teaching of the highest standard, informed by the application of effective, evidence-led pedagogy.
