Academic enrichment

Academic enrichment is at the heart of every lesson at St Helen’s; dialogue and discussion encourage curious and creative thinkers who make links within and across subjects.

Our teachers are subject experts, keen to explore topics from all angles and to share their fascination with our students, whilst well-paced lessons provide opportunities for all to challenge themselves and academic texts are broken down to make accessible to all. In addition, every department curates a catalogue of Going Beyond materials which provide suggestions of reading, listening, watching and visiting to enable students to develop a rich understanding of each subject.
