Our aim is for you to 'Be the best you can be'
Welcome to Hilltop Primary Academy
I am proud and privileged to the be the Headteacher of Hilltop Primary Academy. Hilltop is an oversubscribed two form entry school which has the benefit of a large playing field and a heated indoor swimming pool. The Academy is part of the Skills for Life Trust where there are two Secondary Schools, three Primary Schools and an independent nursery. The school was deemed to be ‘Good’ at the last Ofsted Inspection in February 2016, with an Outstanding grading for Early Years Provision and the pupils’ personal development and welfare.
Children are at the heart of everything we do, and we focus heavily on academic outcomes whilst also developing the whole child. This is delivered through our Skills for Life agenda and our RECIPE acronym. Our whole school community is dedicated to ensuring that children develop, Respect, Excellence, Cooperation, Independence, Perseverance and Enjoyment. We are extremely proud of the children at Hilltop who display excellent work ethic and behaviour. Children enjoy the curriculum because we have lots of enrichment activities to engage them in the topics we teach and support from specialist teachers across the Trust.
We work closely with our parents/carers to ensure that children achieve the best possible outcome to prepare them for secondary education. The staff at Hilltop are dedicated to the children’s development and make sure that their love for learning is embedded to stay with them throughout their academic journey.
We acknowledge that choosing the right primary school is imperative to this life love of learning so please arrange a visit and you will be warmly welcomed.
Mrs Karin Tillett
