The Curriculum

We offer a broad, balanced curriculum with a supportive extra-curricular programme.  This gives individuals the chance to develop talents and receive a well-rounded education for 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 and design and technology facilities are excellent.

Pastoral Care

We aim to provide a warm, safe, caring environment that enables all the children to thrive.  Pastoral Care is 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 the smaller class sizes.

Recent scholarships

Twenty-two scholarships in 2019 including including Prior’s Field, St Catherine’s, St Edmund’s, Frensham Heights, St Swithun’s 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.
