The environment, ethos and opportunities we offer allow every student to discover talents and interests – be that intellectual, sporting or creative – and to fan the flames of those sparks to enable each individual to develop what is special within them.
Our students are encouraged to believe in themselves, to challenge themselves both in school and beyond, and to grow into confident, successful individuals.
Our staff are committed to developing the potential of every student
Princess Helena College delivers a programme of study and enrichment which is tailored to meet the needs of each individual student, encouraging them not only to succeed but to exceed.
Lessons are taught by subject specialist staff. The curriculum is overseen by the Head, who works closely with teachers to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
Our co-curricular programme offers activities at lunchtimes and after school, as part of our extended school day. These run alongside longer term projects and one-off events, ranging from cinematography to the DofE Award and from life-saving to the Model United Nations.
Recent co-curricular activities include:
Students are able to develop, thrive and form lifelong friendships within the diverse community of UK and international boarders
Our boarding staff work to create a supportive and relaxed environment where each student can develop at their own pace. They guide students using liberal praise and encouragement, whilst upholding high expectations of behaviour.
We offer a range of boarding options including:
From September 2020 we will be welcoming girls from years 7-13 and boys from Year 7, 8, 9 and 12 into the boarding house.
Students in Years 11, 12 and 13 have individual study bedrooms, while students in Year 10 share twin spaces, and those in the junior groups share in rooms of between four and six. Boarding house facilities include kitchens and common rooms for relaxation and games. Boarders have access to the music practice rooms, sports facilities, IT suites, the Learning Resources Centre and the Art Department in evenings and weekends.
Princess Helena College is characterised by mutual respect between the students and staff: everyone is expected to accept responsibility for their actions and to behave with care and consideration towards others.
Students at Princess Helena College have a voice in the school and direct responsibility for implementing changes they want and believe in.
Every student is appointed a mentor from our team of staff, who works with them on a one to one basis to guide them academically and personally. Mentors help to develop independence, resilience and perseverance and challenge students to push themselves outside of their comfort zone to make and seize opportunities.
