Whole School Open Day

Our next Open Day will be held Saturday 30 September 2017, between 9.30am and 1.30pm.  Please arrive by 12.15pm if you would like an accompanied tour of the school campus. 

This is a lively and informal occasion and there is no need to 'book' to attend. The programme for the day is full and our staff and students are excited to be able to show you their school.  We look forward to welcoming you to St Helen's.

Sixth Form Open Evening

Thursday 5 October 2017, 5.00pm to 8.00pm. For students interested in joining St Helen's Sixth Form, please find further information and how to book your place here

Junior Department Open Afternoon

Thursday 12 October 2017, 1.30pm to 3.30pm. For parents considering Year 5 or Year 6 entry, further details regarding this event and how to book your place can be found here.

Headmistress' Breakfast

This is an opportunity to see the school 'in action' on a normal school day. We have a small group of families join us for breakfast, with the opportunity to talk with Mrs Dougall, Headmistress and senior staff. Families then have a tour of the school campus with a Sixth Form guide.  We have several Headmistress' Breakfast throughout the year, please contact our Admissions Office to request an appointment.

Individual Visit to the School 

Ideally, your first visit to the school would be at our Open Day at least one year prior to entry, although we would encourage you to come along earlier - children of all ages are welcome. Following this visit, in the year prior to entry, you are invited to make an appointment with the Headmistress, to tour the school with one of our Sixth Form girls and to meet with Admissions. Please contact our Admissions Office to request an appointment.
