A note from the principal

As Principal of Hillocks Primary Academy, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our academy. As a parent, I place huge importance on high standards of education and care for my own children. As the Principal of Hillocks, I set exactly the same standards for your children. 

Hillocks is a warm, welcoming and inclusive school where diversity is respected and celebrated, and where we work together in partnership to ensure that all our children thrive intellectually, socially, culturally, physically and spiritually. We have a set of core behaviours that we foster in our children those of kindness, respect, responsibility, curiosity and determination.  

We are an academy with the community at its heart. All of us place great emphasis on relationships and we work hard to foster good relationships with all members of our school community. The contribution that parents and carers make in supporting their child’s learning is highly valued, and it is important to us that we work as part of a team. 

Our pupils are cared for, nurtured and enabled to succeed in an atmosphere of high expectation and aspiration. Our curriculum is rich and varied, designed to inspire curiosity and embed core skills and knowledge. We want every child to reach their academic potential, preparing them for the next stage of their academic journey and equip them for citizenship in the modern world. 

Thank you for taking an interest in Hillocks. We welcome you to visit and have a look around to see the exciting things happening throughout the academy. We look forward to meeting you. 

Claire Gledhill, Principal
