The Curriculum

We offer a broad, balanced curriculum supported by a wide extra-curricular programme, giving individuals the chance to develop their talents and receive a well-rounded education for future life.

Games & The Arts

Our sports’ ethos is participation for all and we hope to foster a positive attitude towards physical activity. Music and drama play an important role in everyday life at the school and the standard is high. Our art, design and technology facilities are excellent.

Pastoral Care

We aim to provide a warm, safe, caring environment that enables all children to thrive. Pastoral care is initially the responsibility of the class teacher who provides a link between the school and home. We greatly value the individual and believe pupils benefit hugely from our smaller class sizes. 

Recent scholarships

23 scholarships and exhibitions in 2020, including Prior’s Field, St Edmund’s, Seaford, Edgeborough and Tormead. 

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

At St Hilary’s, each pupil’s individual talents and strengths are recognised and utilised ensuring all reach their full potential in a vibrant, busy yet nurturing environment. Our aim is to educate the whole child by providing unequalled opportunities, support and encouragement for their ongoing development.
