How to find us

Welcome from the Headmistress

I am delighted to welcome you to our website which will give you a glimpse of all the wonderful things that take place at our school. St Helen and St Katharine is one of the leading girls’ schools in the country and the whole community is justifiably proud of a tradition of high aspiration and academic achievement. We take just as much pleasure in the warmth and fun of the atmosphere here and the inspiring range of extra-curricular opportunities available to students. We also celebrate the importance that values, social responsibility and reflection hold within school.

This is a happy place and an environment in which relationships built on kindness and respect are forged. Our ambitions for the girls are wide-ranging but we know that the most lasting future successes will be based upon their developing confidence and an open-minded and creative approach to life and learning.


A website provides, at best, a snapshot. Once you have explored the site I would encourage you to visit us and gain a first-hand impression of the school, its facilities and, most importantly, its atmosphere.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing further my pride in leading this outstanding school.

Mrs Rebecca Dougall, Headmistress
