I spent 7 years as a pupil at St. Hilda’s, leaving in 2015 after studying Music, Mathematics, French and Geography for A-level and undertaking an Extended Project Qualification. I am now studying for an undergraduate degree in Music at the University of Liverpool. For me, St. Hilda’s has always had a very friendly atmosphere so I jumped at the chance to return to school once a week to teach peripatetic music lessons, I continue to do this and really enjoy it. I know that I never would have had the confidence to do this had it not been for the encouragement and support that I received throughout my time at St. Hilda’s. St Hilda’s is a family where everyone achieves.
Extended Project A*
I studied at St Hilda’s from Year 7-11 and naturally continued into Sixth Form. I really enjoyed my experience at school and couldn’t have asked for a better educational experience. I chose to study Chemistry, Biology and Maths for my A levels and an AS Level in German. All of my teachers invested heavily in my education, tracking my progression throughout the year carefully to keep me on track! As a result of this, I managed to achieve 3 A’s at A level which I needed for my university place!
I also completed the Extended Project which has proved to be extremely valuable in my everyday work in University. I am now in Year 2 of a Chemical Engineering degree in The University of Sheffield and enjoying this new challenge that St Hilda’s prepared me so well for! St Hilda’s supported my aspirations every step of the way!
Starting at St Hilda’s in year 7 without any of my friends from primary school was a daunting prospect, but the staff at the school were very committed to helping me settle in and I loved my time there. It was a very natural decision to stay on at St Hilda’s Sixth Form where I studied Geography, Spanish and Maths for my A Levels at St Hilda’s. The teachers were incredibly supportive of my education and were always more than willing to dedicate extra time.
I was encouraged to always achieve the best I could and I am now studying a BSc Geography degree at the University of Leeds.
