Princess Helena College is an independent school for girls located in the small village of Preston near Hitchin in Hertfordshire. It is housed in a Grade II* listed Queen Anne country house, formerly known as Temple Dinsley, which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens, at the same time as the gardens were designed by his great friend, Gertrude Jekyll.
It was one of the first academic schools for girls, originally founded for daughters of officers who had served in the Napoleonic Wars and daughters of Anglican clergy. It is a member of the Girls' Schools Association.
The college has three types of boarder :- Full Boarder (boarding 7 times a week), Weekly Boarder (boarding 5/4 times a week) and Flexible Boarder (boarding 1 - 3 nights a week). The school has lovely grounds surrounding it and is an all-girls school.
