Welcome to St Heliers School

DSC 0052St Heliers is a school that strives for excellence. Our aim is to guide and nurture each student to reach their potential in all areas of school life. Integral to achieving this aim is having a close partnership between home and school.

Being a full primary (Years 1 to 8) we are in a unique position to see the development of the students from young bright-eyed 5 year olds to young adolescents. From the earliest stages of their schooling, students are encouraged to be independent, responsible learners.

Older students are expected to look out for younger students. At the start of the year senior classes are buddied up with a junior class to support the children in various aspects of their schooling. This also helps to create the family atmosphere we want at St Heliers.

The library is a focal point of the school - all classes have a timetabled session each week. The children are encouraged to also visit during lunch times and on a Tuesday and Thursday from 8 – 8.40am.

All pupils are encouraged to borrow books and take them home to read. Normal library rules apply and books should be returned by the due date.

You can contact the library manager about overdue books, making book donations or for any other reason.
