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

I’m Lucy, the Head Girl.  When I came to HRS in Year 7, I was shy, quiet and nervous.  However, everyone was welcoming.  All of the teachers are so supportive and friendly and have helped me to reach my full potential.  My favourite thing about HRS is all of the extra-curricular sporting activities and opportunities that are offered.  Thanks to the school, I’ve done things I never dreamt of doing!

I’m Oliver, the Head Boy.  When I joined as a Year 7 student, I would never have believed that four years later I would be in the position I am.  But that’s what is so good about HRS.  The teachers recognise and develop your strengths and support you to make further improvements.  This support gave me the assurance I needed to apply for the position of Head Boy.  What is also great, is the range of extra-curricular activities which are offered here.  These helped me to grow in confidence and make new friends.
