At St. Hugh’s High School for Girls, we believe in the primacy of optimal student learning supported by competent teachers and efficient systems. The school is concerned with the development of the whole child. Therefore, while we hope that you will achieve the academic excellence of which you are capable, we also are interested in developing the physical, moral and aesthetic aspects of your life. We regard you as a human being with dignity and rights and hope that you will develop self respect which will in turn serve as the basis for respect for others and property. Our expectation is that you will become a person of vision and make a worthwhile contribution to your school and society. This will become a reality if you are disciplined and develop a sense of responsibility and initiative. We believe that you will develop into a caring human being willing to help others and that as a young lady in an institution with an enviable record for excellence; you will always act with dignity and decorum.
