Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Helena Romanes School.

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
Executive Headteacher

Listen to what our students have to say

Hello, I’m Maisie, one of the head students at HRS. For the four years I’ve been at this school, I’ve always felt well supported. Having this opportunity means I can give back to the school community and ensure other students are happy during their time here. Most importantly it means I can continue to create a positive environment where everyone feels safe to be truly themselves.

Hello, I'm Ellis and I am a head student. Throughout my years at HRS I have always felt I have had both support and encouragement to always try my best in everything I do.  I am grateful for  the variety of extra-curricular clubs on offer as they allowed me to better my social skills in Year 7 and learn about teamwork. Becoming Head student means I am able to give back to the school community that has done so much for us over our school career.
