I have long been convinced of the enormous value of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and I look forward to seeing many more St Helen's students picking up their 'golds' at the palace in the future. We are delighted to announce that Anna Carpenter and Susannah Lea,both Lower Sixth, have been awarded a Nuffield Research Placement this summer, two of only 22 placements offered in Oxfordshire.
There were some fantastic individual performances but it was a huge team effort from all involved. Unofficial analysis puts the team 6th nationally and we are really looking forward to the regional round in Solihull on the 15 June. Vocal students from years 5 to U6 performed in this term's Singers' Concert. Repertoire was very varied, from music theatre favourites to Baroque arias and Romantic English song, and all the girls performed with poise and commitment.
It was lovely to have some of the talented U6 girls display technically polished performances which really moved the audience, and reminded us how far they have come since their earliest concerts! Of course we shall miss these girls very much next year and are hugely grateful to them for everything they have done for the vocal department, but judging by Tuesday's concert there are many future stars in the lower years to watch!
Many thanks to all who took part. Years 7 and 8 have achieved an excellent set of results in the Junior Mathematical Challenge, gaining 17 gold, 53 silver and 51 bronze certificates between them. This is a two hour written paper with full solutions required. This is a one hour multiple choice paper, like the Junior Mathematical Challenge, but harder!
Fifty five girls and their guests attended the annual Year 10 charity dinner. They were joined by nine members of staff. The evening began with a selection of truly delicious starters, prepared by our Executive Chef, Olivier. A table quiz provided a challenge whilst we ate the main course and Martha Glendinning performed two songs which drew great applause from her peers. After a chocolate desert, Mr Cumming read some of his poetry before the raffle was drawn.
The organising committee should be very proud of their achievement in making the evening a success. A-level biologists had a well-deserved celebration in the biology break-out area during their final lesson. Their revision is being sustained by some amazing home baking! Congratulations to all biologists for your sustained hard work throughout the year, we wish you the best of luck in all your examinations! The ferry ride gave them their first glance of their destination, in glorious sunshine, and they settled into their cabins in high spirits, ready for a timetable of exciting experiences.
Alas the weather was not to hold, but despite some torrential rain and high winds on their second day, the girls braved the conditions, picking up new sailing skills on the open water, and valiantly scaling high ropes. The three days were filled with activities, from archery and quad biking to abseiling and climbing, but the highlight for many was the giant swing, which gave them panoramic views of the island followed by an exhilarating free fall.
They were kept busy right up until bed time, with an exciting world quiz trail on their first night, and a chance to dress to impress and dance the night away at the disco on their last evening! The trip was a great success and the girls returned on Friday, tired and bags full of muddy clothes, but buzzing with stories and memories of a fun and action-packed few days!
See more photos in the gallery Year 8 students visited Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot to watch a masked performance by acclaimed mask theatre company Vamos Theatre. The play, called Nursing Lives, told the sad but uplifting story of a nurse in a hospital during WWII, as seen through the eyes of her older self looking back on her past. Having studied mask work for six weeks as part of their drama curriculum, this was a great opportunity for Year 8 to see the skills put into practice in a professional production, and to see how engaging and moving a masked performance can be.
Thank you Vamos Theatre! Driving down the winding roads to Nettlecombe, the girls became increasingly aware of the remote rural location of the centre as their mobile access gradually disappeared, bar, by bar! On arrival at the beautiful period property, the girls were given a tour of the site and were relieved to find an endless supply of tea and cake to get them through the long days ahead! After lunch, we spent the afternoon in our class groups conducting two river studies with our FSC tutors Anelma and Robyn.
Our first aim was to investigate river channel characteristics on a meander bend in the middle course. Through measuring the characteristics of the river on the meander bend and comparing this to the straight section of the channel, the girls were able to produce river cross sections in our evening teaching session. The second aim was to investigate levels of river pollution in contrasting freshwater environments. Some girls thought we were going fishing when they were handed their nets and trays.
Forget social media, biotic indicator measurements proved much more exciting! First stop was Porlock Bay where the girls created beach profiles and measured pebble size and shape to assess the effect of longshore drift. Lunch was held in the pretty harbour where the ice cream man certainly enjoyed the boost in visitor numbers to the area.
Our Travel Styles in Peru
To burn off our lunch, we walked across the headland, taking in the breath-taking views and putting our artistic abilities to the test creating a field sketch of the bay. The competition was tense as the girls battled it out to find the roundest pebble on the beach…perhaps this should be our new house competition?! Our final stop was Minehead where we assessed the success of coastal management techniques and completed environmental quality surveys of the high street.
Despite some believing Nettlecombe was haunted! My thanks go to Miss Snowdon and Miss Prior for accompanying the trip. We have returned to school with 38 geographers who are ready for success in their GCSE examinations thanks to all their hard work and enthusiasm during their geographical adventure! They have done very well to be selected and we wish them all the best as they prepare for the final. Camerata started the evening on a high with a fantastic and lively rendition of Hoe Down by Aaron Copland and the evening progressed with just as much success for all the performers.
There were several solos played on stringed instruments ranging in size from harps to cellos to violins. Finally thank you to Mrs Walton for organising such an enjoyable and successful evening. Eleven Year 9 girls have successfully completed their Bronze CREST Award, which requires them to investigate a scientific topic relevant to their everyday lives. Girls carried out research, undertook surveys and engaged enthusiastically in practical experiments, whilst experiencing the trials and tribulations of science beyond the classroom.
The projects covered a range of topics including 'Do you know what you are drinking? The presentations on their findings were of an exceptionally high standard and all girls received a well-deserved certificate. Many of our girls participated along with students and adults from around the region. Well done to everyone who took part. They each had to submit a short video outlining why they should be considered for the bursary and for them to reach the final six is a fantastic achievment in itself!
These are 1 hour follow on rounds to the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. Congratulations to them all. Politics students from the L6 staged a mini election campaign for pupils at the Manor Preapratory School. They also took questions from pupils and teachers before dismissing their voters to the ballot boxes. Her messages motivated the girls, parents, staff and governors, to work hard, never give up and believe in themselves to achieve their dreams.
The overview of the sporting year from the Lower Sixth sports representatives and the presentation of awards across a huge variety of sports, including to our thirteen girls representing their country, highlighted just how much we have achieved over the past 12 months. Plans for the future, including the building of our new Sports Complex, were met with enthusiasm and excitement.
Even the raffle proved a highlight when a new comedy genius emerged in the shape of PE teacher Miss Hobbiss! Thanks to the generosity of our guests, we were able to present sizable donations to the charities we were supporting on the night - Blue Skye Thinking and Kingfisher, our School charity this year. The One Day Film School provided the perfect challenge day for our students, encouraging them to be creative, innovative and spontaneous. It was great to see the girls flourishing throughout the day as they learnt about film history and the importance of storytelling and then went on to have fun with cameras and produce a short film in small groups.
The films were shown at the end of the afternoon with an Oscar awarded to the team who produced the best film. Altogether, this day offered a thrilling, fun, different and very special way of learning in School. All ten companies were judged on their trade stand, company report, knowledge and strictly enforced four minute presentation. The tension was palpable as the winners were announced but Navigate stood out to the judges, not just because of the orange t-shirts, and were the first company to receive their trophy.
The event showcased sequences from four beloved musicals spanning ten decades.

It was a spectacular evening! At lunchtime on Thursday 23 April the school's mock election campaign was launched. All six candidates - Clara Hodge, Isabella Jewell, Annabel Record, Katie Jenkins, Ellie Fishleigh and Cat Carrigan and their teams were to be found in the quad handing out manifestos, answering questions from students and staff and giving out the odd edible incentive in return for particularly intellectual questions. Everyone present was really impressed at the quality of questions given by girls, especially in younger years; ranging from the housing crisis in the south east to the merits of Trident to the best ways to eliminate the deficit.
We were also very impressed by the quality of the candidates' answers and look forward to hearing more from them in the debate next week. Among criticism of the younger generation's lack of interest in politics, the soapbox lunchtime demonstrated just how engaged many young people are and brings hopes of a very impressive turnout for mock election polling day on the 5th May.
It was a tough event, winds light and shifty but Hanna sailed consistently well over the 5 days, her series included a race win and no penalties. Public Library; Ken H. Carter, Beryl D.
