At St. Hild’s Church of England School we welcome everybody into our community. We believe that our community should reflect God’s wish that every child is welcomed and should be provided with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.
Every student at St. Hild’s has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects as well as following an appropriate GCSE curriculum pathway.
Our speciality is Engineering and SEND students have achieved excellent Engineering qualifications.
We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include after school interventions, short-term intervention learning or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis.
We have good attendance at St. Hild's as students want to come to school to experience our high quality learning environment.
