I take great pleasure in welcoming you to Hele’s School! We are a school with a tradition of academic excellence, high aspirations and a big heart. A school that students and staff are proud to attend. A school where we never compromise our insistence that everyone is valued, learns, enjoys and achieves. Expectations for staff and students are high, but very simple; work hard both to do things right and to do the right thing…even when no one is looking!
Our mission is to support and challenge each individual, adult or child, to be the best they can be. We have a ‘no excuses’ philosophy based on growth mindset principles, which reinforces our belief that all of us can always improve, and that nothing is impossible. Quite simply, it isn’t about being ‘the best’ at something, but being better than we were yesterday or today. It is for this reason that recognising and celebrating endeavour, as well as achievement, is something we hold dear.
We work hard at providing an inclusive, calm, and purposeful learning environment, and aim to ensure all students have opportunities to enrich their learning, to discover new skills and interests, and to master others through providing a breadth of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities to excite and engage young people, wherever their interests or aspirations may lie.
These are exciting times for our school as we journey towards, and beyond, excellence and we would be delighted if you were to choose to share that journey with us! With your help, we will build on the successes of Hele’s School to date and continue with our quest to not just meet, but to exceed, our aspiration to be a school that is beyond outstanding in every measure.
Please do take the time to explore our website to find out more about us, and don’t hesitate to contact us should you require any further information about our school. Better still, come and see us for yourself! We delight in showing people our school and rest assured that a very warm welcome awaits you. Visitors always comment on the purposeful, caring and happy ethos of the school, so what better way for you to find out more about our vision and values than to come and experience them first-hand?
We look forward to working with you in partnership in the future, and to welcoming you to Hele’s School.
A great place to learn. A great place to grow.
Inspiring teachers, aspiring learners

Following a number of hoax bomb calls to schools across the UK recently, the Police are working with schools nationally to ensure the safety of all students and staff and to minimise disruption to learning. We have reviewed our current evacuation policy and procedures in light of new guidance issued this week, and have made tweaks where necessary to further strengthen our protocol around dealing with major incidents.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you to attend the Year 8 Subject Staff/Parents’ Evening, at which you will have an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with subject teachers.
As you may well be aware following the Parent Tutor Evening earlier in the year, we have introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with your child’s teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. Staff will be able to book appointments from Monday 6th June, should they feel it imperative that they see you. This will be done in discussion with your son/daughter so please let them know when you are available to attend. The system is open for you to book appointments from Monday 6th June and the booking system will close at midnight on Tuesday 21st June.
Please click on the link below to book your appointments. A short guide on how to add appointments is also included below. It is almost impossible to stick strictly to the appointment times because it is such a busy evening but staff will do their best to do so.
