St Helen's hosts inaugural Oxbridge Symposium for Year 12 Oxbridge applicants 🙌

Our own students were joined by like-minded peers from Merchant Taylors’, Beaconsfield High School, Haydon and Northwood School for an evening of challenging subject supervisions facilitated by a range of Oxbridge graduates and professionals.

The room was full of inspirational conversations where on one side a philosophical debate on Nietzsche could be overheard while on the other a passionate discussion on the optimum design of a wind turbine!

It was a fantastic evening! Thank you to all who put it together 😎

In the week leading up to the midterm break we welcomed Shelina Zahra Janmohamed, a bestselling author, to share her experiences, insights and inspiration for her latest book; Story of Now, a retelling of the history of the British Empire.

Sixth Form students spend an inspiring day exploring the Heart of UK Democracy🏛️✨

The day began with a deep dive into the legislative process, where history meets the hustle and bustle of politics in the Palace of Westminster. Here the students experienced the grandeur of the House of Commons and the House of Lords before participating in a workshop about how The UK Parliament passes legislation.

They then spent some time at the free market think tank, which was founded by Margaret Thatcher, the Centre for Policy Studies, where the group delved into a thought-provoking Q&A.

The day concluded with a powerful session at the UK's leading civil liberties group, Liberty, where conversations about the impact of recent legislation on the right to protest reminded the group of the delicate balance between security and freedom.

Discovering London's transport history 🚌🚋

Last week our Year 3's enjoyed a day out at the London Transport Museum. They learnt about the incredible history of public transport in London which began with horse-drawn omnibus services in 1829, the first motor omnibuses in 1902, the Underground appearing as a cooperative system between independent private companies in 1908, and the significant steps taken toward a unified public transport system which occurred in 1933 when London Transport was created to bring all transport services under one authority.

It was a fascinating day out for all!

Yesterday, 24 girls from Years 7, 8, and 9 embarked on an unforgettable trip to the Lee Valley Hockey Centre in Stratford to witness the thrilling Hockey Pro League. The day was packed with excitement as we cheered on the Great Britain women's team against the USA and the Great Britain men's team against Ireland.

Adding to the excitement, the girls had the incredible opportunity to watch Mr. Cross in action, playing in this international spectacle. The atmosphere was electric, the standard of play was outstanding, and the enjoyment was felt by all.

Empowering our students to be bold and courageous is at the core of what we stand for. Courage isn’t just physical bravery; it’s also about speaking out, taking risks, and acting in alignment with your beliefs.

But what does this mean for our students, and what are some of their experiences? We spent some time with students from across our school to unpack and learn about their lived experiences.

In early May, 53 Year 10 students set off on their bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition in the Chiltern Hills.

They began at Wendover station and had planned six hours of walking each day! The walks went well, with the girls navigating their routes and overcoming the various challenges they faced. They showed excellent resilience and determination in the face of adverse weather conditions where they experienced both rain and heat.

It was an incredible weekend and a wonderful opportunity for our students to enjoy an adventure in the beautiful Chiltern Hills.

Fun in the sun! 😎🌞

To finish off their Art topic on portraits, our Year 2 girls spent some time collecting natural materials, which they used to create their own royal portraits.

The Oxford dictionary primarily defines ‘brave’ as the following: "Ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage." This means that for someone to be brave they need:

1. The ability to endure.
2. Courage.

Brave women are not defined by the absence of fear, but by their ability to rise above it, to embrace their inner strength, and to act in the face of adversity.
