Our Identity

The School’s Motto

Our motto on the school crest is a Latin saying, Domine dirige nos: Lord direct us.

The founders of St Hilda’s have ensured that we remain conscious of the faith that led them to establish a place of education for young women. It was their belief that God would guide and lead the School in the right direction.

Today we can be pleased with the direction the School has taken and the many continuing successes we enjoy and we reflect on our religious roots in chapel services throughout the year and in Religious and Philosophical Studies. Our Chaplain is involved with the school on a daily basis and encourages us to approach religious ideas with an open, enquiring mind. Through thought, investigation and reflection, students are able to make informed decisions about personal faith and ethical behaviour.
