Old St Helen School New Sports Hall


St Helen's School was founded by May Rowland Brown in 1899. She began to teach at Northwood College, which at the time, refused to take in any students that were connected with trade. Whilst still at Northwood College, a group of local businessmen persuaded her to start another school, and at the age of 25, she founded Northwood High School, later named St Helen's School.

The new St Helen's sports complex was finished in 2004 on the site of the old 33 yard pool. The new sports complex  by Steve Parry, Olympic Bronze Medalist. It consists of a 25m swimming pool sports hall and gym.
