About St Hilary’s

St Hilary’s is an independent preparatory day school which provides a stimulating, safe environment in which boys and girls can develop, be happy and flourish.

Situated in the heart of Godalming, St Hilary’s prides itself in providing an outstanding all-round education, equipping pupils not only with strong academic standards but also the essential qualities and skills required beyond their time at our school. Ultimately we strive to ensure that all our pupils develop a real thirst for learning.

Every child enjoys the benefits of well-qualified, enthusiastic staff and a broad curriculum combined with splendid facilities. Amenities include well-equipped classrooms, music wing, spacious hall for the performing arts, library, modern computing suite, design & technology and art studios, all-weather pitch and the Hiorns Centre for drama and dance. Small class sizes allow children to achieve their best in a dynamic and vibrant environment.

We are continually developing our outdoor areas, enabling boys and girls to learn outside the classroom all year round.  With trails, nesting boxes and an open-air classroom, the woodland is a popular place to explore and is used for Forest School and features in lessons and activities across the curriculum.  The Taurus Trail and Young Explorers’ Area provide further opportunity for pupils to challenge themselves during break times. Children are responsible for their own areas within the grounds and learn what is required to nurture and care for plants and flowers.

Solid links with our local community are of paramount importance to us, as are strong traditional moral values based on a Christian ethos.  The school bases its values on firm Christian principles through which the children may learn the importance of caring and consideration for other people.  

Parents are guided in next school options and have the opportunity to make informed choices at a time when a child’s true academic potential can be accurately predicted and talents in other areas identified. We have an excellent reputation in securing first-choice schools for our pupils when they leave. Our Year 6 leavers successfully move on to prestigious schools; every year many obtain academic, art, music, sport and drama scholarships.

Please do come and visit us; we will be delighted to welcome you and discuss your child’s education.
