How to find us


At St Helen’s we place great emphasis on our broad extracurricular programme. Life beyond the classroom here is full. A wide range of sports, clubs and societies, music, arts, drama, educational visits and expeditions are available including Young Enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. We encourage the girls to explore their interests and try new things. They can participate purely for fun, to broaden their interests or to follow their strengths and excel through selective teams and groups, music and drama productions. We aim to inspire them to develop their learning and experiences, to enjoy all that is on offer and provide them with the space and opportunity to make their own choices and find their own niche.

All activities, with the exception of those clubs involving an external coach or travelling expenses for trips and expeditions, are offered to students free of charge.

Our extracurricular programme is detailed in the 2017/18 Beyond booklet and corresponding planner – both available below. The printable planner includes details of where and when activities take place and who is in charge, as well as a blank timetable for organising your daughter’s weekly activities.
