St. Helen's College

Case Study


Annual Leaver’s Year Book


BACKGROUND – St. Helen’s College Hillingdon is a leading coeducational independent prep school in North West London, with its own Nursery and Kindergarten. They have a well-deserved reputation for providing children with exceptional care and attention, for encouraging all-round achievement, and for academic excellence.

The Director of Communications has diligently been producing a year book every year for their Year 6 leavers as both a momento and a thank you. This book was cherished by both pupils and parents alike. In 2018, we made a proposal to the school to design the entire book in keeping with its rebranding exercise and image.

BRIEF – Design a book where each child has their own spread to share a snapshot of their experiences and achievements at school. All the pupils would have professional portraits taken and the school would contribute other relevant images of the children’s many years at the school.

RESULTS – The A-Photo team captured all the portraits of the pupils and heads of the school. Furthermore, we designed a sleek and minimalist layout, allowing the images and stories to shine. The 120 page book, printed on 12 ink HP printers, comes with premium hardcover, and is expertly bound in Europe. We’ve produced this book for 3 consecutive years and been invited to produce the 2021 year book too.


* To protect the identity of the pupils, the gallery below is a very small sample of the 120 pages. Hardcopies are available to review.
