HRS Virtual Sixth Form Open Evening

Please click on the following link to take you to our Sixth Form Virtual Open Evening: https://www.helena-romanes.essex.sch.uk/sixth-form-open-virtual-open-evening/

Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to The Helena Romanes School and Sixth Form Centre.

At Helena Romanes, we are ambitious for our students and we offer them a rich and varied curriculum. Our students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that enables them to move successfully into higher education, apprenticeships, training or employment.

While academic achievement is of crucial importance, we also ensure that we focus effectively on developing our students’ personal, social and creative skills. Our aim is that students leave Helena Romanes as successful, confident and considerate young adults.

We are very proud of our students. They are superb ambassadors for our school when they represent us locally, nationally and internationally, participating in our many and varied extra-curricular activities.

At Helena Romanes, we have a large team of well-qualified, dedicated staff who focus on supporting students’ progress and well-being. We work closely with parents, carers and the wider community to ensure we provide a well-coordinated approach to our students’ learning and development. The following information will provide an insight into life at our school, but this is no substitute for visiting us. We always offer a warm welcome to prospective students and their families.

Kind regards,
Daniel Gee BA (Hons), MA, NPQH
Headteacher

Listen to what our students have to say

Hello, I'm Sophie, Head Girl at HRS. Since Year 7, HRS has given my fellow students and I the support and help we need to thrive in this learning community. As a result, we are a group of well-rounded individuals ready to face the world. HRS has helped me build my confidence and develop my abilities. I look forward to continuing to grow, develop and thrive in the future.

I’m Roshaan, Head Boy at HRS. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at HRS and I am delighted to have been given the responsibility of being Head Boy. All the teachers at HRS are approachable. They will help you and push you to be your best self. The school has a great atmosphere and there are plenty of opportunities in which all students can take part and excel!
