Academic Facilities

St Helen’s pupils enjoy access to an excellent range of facilities to support their learning.

In Little Gables and Gables (the buildings dedicated to the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1) the girls are taught in modern, well-equipped classrooms. In Key Stage 2 they use specialist rooms for Science, Design & Technology, Music, Art, Drama and Computer Science in addition to the general purpose classrooms in the new Junior School building.

In Senior School, girls enjoy dedicated teaching blocks for Science and Music. The June Leader Building houses Art, Design & Technology and Drama; we also possess ICT rooms with digital language facilities. There are seminar classrooms for the Sixth Form as well as dedicated study areas. The Centre provides space for Drama, Music and Gymnastics as well as a recording studio.

The campus is wireless networked, which enables ICT to be fully integrated into learning and teaching, and all three sections of the school make the most of their well-resourced libraries.

The superb sports facilities, including a 25-metre six-lane swimming pool, fully-equipped fitness suite, sports hall with climbing wall, dance studio and floodlit netball courts are used throughout the school day for lessons, as well as for the extensive co-curricular programme at lunchtimes, after school and at weekends.
