Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. St Helen’s is a happy, family-like environment where each child can flourish spiritually, socially, and academically. We recognise the gifts of each child and nurture them to achieve their full potential. Our strong focus, centred around Christ; living out the Gospel values and Catholic Social Teachings is at the heart of all that we do.
Learning at St Helen’s is fun, safe, and enriched every day; we fully promote learning at school and at home, recognising the important role of working in partnership with parents and the community. Celebrating the diversity of the community and our families makes St Helen’s a wonderful place where everybody can grow together.
Three generations of my family, including myself, all attend / attended St Helen’s as children and so I view my journey from child, to teacher, to senior leader and into my headship here as an incredible testament to the school. My vision is to have similarly high expectations for all our children too.
I hope that this website provides an insight into what life is like at St Helen’s.
With best wishes,
Miss Claire Doherty
