St Hilda’s School celebrates centenary

The Bushey-based prep school for girls is marking the century since its founding with a series of activities throughout the year

St Hilda’s, a preparatory school in Bushey, is celebrating its centenary. The institution, which teaches girls aged four to 11, was established by Violet Curry in 1918 with a stated aim to “educate girls for the future – whatever that may be”. The school has been at its current site since 1928.

Sarah Jane Styles, headteacher at the school, said: “St Hilda’s is a school with a distinguished history, and it’s important that our pupils feel an affinity with that history. It’s a connection that really helps them to develop their own strong sense of identity.”

To mark the anniversary, St Hilda’s is holding a series of events throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, including an afternoon tea for alumnae, and a series of surprises for current students.

Other commemorations will include a centenary logo, memorabilia for students, and new school signage.
