About The Hill Primary Academy

The Hill Primary Academy is a primary school in the heart of its community.  As Principal, I am immensely proud to lead such a welcoming, hardworking and caring team.  Also, to be able to work with kind, respectful children who want to learn and develop their understanding of the world is a privilege!

We are a vibrant, friendly two form entry primary school.  We are proud to be a part of the Astrea Academy Trust, a family of 27 schools across South Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire with a proven track record of school improvement.  ‘Inspiring Beyond Measure’ embodies The Trusts passion by stating our commitment to ‘educate, not just school’.

The Astrea dispositions of Resilience, Empathy, Aspiration, Contribution and Happiness are encouraged and nurtured in all ofour students in our academy and also in our staff – at both the academy and Trust level.

With over 370 pupils aged between 3-11 at The Hill Primary Academy, we have a strong ethos of inclusion.  We encourage all children to be confident, independent learners, caring for themselves as well as others around them.  We set ourselves high standards of respect, resilience and achievement.  As a team we are constantly striving to provide our children with the best possible education and a range of opportunities.

At The Hill Primary Academy, our aim is to empower children in a life full of choices.  We hope to provide experiences and the knowledge so that children can make informed decisions, encouraging children to takes risks and to learn from their previous choices to help them to make better, informed choices as they move through life.  We aim to foster a love of learning and develop enquiring minds through a curriculum especially tailored to our school and the needs of the children. Our curriculum drivers; heritage, knowledge of the world, cultural diversity, aspiration and healthy minds and bodies help our curriculum take shape.  These drivers are our passions.  We also place a high emphasis on the development of basic skills to support our children. We ensure that our children value themselves as unique individuals, respecting the differences and working together as a community to enable our children to develop as responsible citizens.

Last year the school opened a successful community hub that supports adult learning, mental health and wellbeing and a number ofopportunities for members of the community to come together for a collective cause.  We hope to continue our work on this over the coming years to strengthen our community links.  Parent partnerships are regarded with upmost importance at The Hill.  Only when working with parents and carers and sharing a common goal, do we achieve the very best for our children.
