St Hilda's School was an independent day school for girls aged 3-16 and boys up to age 11 in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. It was one of few independent schools in the county which did not have a sixth form.


St Hilda's predecessor school St Clare's was founded by Mrs Tunnicliffe in 1946 at Thorpe Bay. St Clare's soon outgrew its premises and new buildings in Westcliff-on-Sea were purchased. St Hilda's was opened on January 1947. The school was owned by Mrs Tunnicliffe's family.[1]

St Hilda's School was foreclosed and closed in Summer 2014
