What the school says...
The core values of Hillstone school are "INSPIRE, CARE, EDUCATE". Our tests results are above the national average for all core subjects and our value added score is well above the national average. We are passionate though about ensuring that children have an all round education, and the way that is delivered is through inspiring, engaging activities.
Every junior child has the opportunity to go on a residential visit every year. We are a pathfinder school for Modern foreign languages; teaching Spanish in year 3, Italian in year 4, German in year 5 and French in year 6. Children also have the opportunity to take guitar and keyboard lessons. Numerous after school clubs cover a range of interests; cookery, gardening, football, art, netball, hockey and we will shortly be having a drama club.
Before school there is a free breakfast club from 8.00am where children socialise and play games before school starts. We have very spacious grounds, with climbing frames, two football pitches and trim trail as well as an outdoor classroom to support science and geography work.
Hillstone regularly invites professional artists into school to work with the children, these may be musicians, dancers or artists.
We are very proud of the ethos that we create at the school, behaviour is good and Ofsted noted "This is a very caring school where teachers and all support staff are dedicated to the well-being and best interest of the children". Special needs children make very good progress at the school. We welcome visitors. Please contact the office to make an appointment for a tour. ...Read more
