In our SIAMS report, March 2017, we were graded as OUTSTANDING in all 4 areas and OUTSTANDING overall.

All stakeholders describe the school as being ‘one big family’ where everyone cares for and helps one another. One parent commented that the family feel of the school meant that her son felt safe and at home here at St. Hilda’s’.

Living out the new Christian values of wisdom, hope, community, dignity and equality, combining Christian teachings, underpins the excellent behaviour and relationships within the school.

When invited to speak about these services, students do so with enthusiasm, one commenting ‘we help make it happen’. The Eucharist is held in school at significant times of the Christian year. The end of year service and annual carol service in the cathedral, are high points in the school’s worship calendar. All stakeholders speak of how they value these services. Staff particularly referenced a recent Epiphany service when one Year 8 student gave the address and the impact of the message given as ‘powerful and memorable’.

The long established Christian ethos is valued by all members of the school community and has a positive impact on behaviour, relationships and attitudes to learning.

The excellent pastoral and academic support arising from the Christian belief in the worth of every individual means that all are nurtured, supported and managed with compassion and attention.
