Just wanted to say how brilliant the outdoor play facilities are at Hillside and how grateful I am that they are regularly used. Many schools do not have orchards or outdoor classrooms and they add such brilliant variety and rich learning experiences for the children.
hank you for your bravery in allowing the children to explore nature and have fun outdoors, even if this may mean the odd bump or scrape. It is well worth it,for the huge learning and social benefits it brings.
“I was struck by the total commitment and sense of pride in their work and their school community that coloured the conversations that I had with various members of the teaching staff. The school lunch samples on offer were very tasty and it was good to be able to chat to the people responsible for menu planning and cooking.”
“Well done on a fantastic Open Day. The school looked amazing and it was lovely to see so many people there.”
“I was very impressed with Hillside Primary School at the Open Day. What an absolutely lovely school. Can’t speak highly enough of everything we saw. I think we are very lucky to have such good schools around here.”
“My youngest daughter is soon to leave Hillside as she comes to the end of her time in year 6. Both my daughters have had an amazing time at Hillside; they have been taught well, cared for, had their confidence built upon and have had great fun along the way. Hillside has been a huge part of our lives over the last 10 years and I would like to thank all the staff for their hard work and commitment to all the pupils. We will depart from Hillside with very fond memories.”
“My child is almost at the end of her first year of school. Hillside wasn’t my first choice for her due to negative views regarding the school by locals. I relayed my fears to the school & they were very supportive & understanding. A year on I am so pleased she goes to hillside, it is a wonderful school that is welcoming, supportive & encouraging. A great community feel & a can do attitude. She has achieved so much this year, I am very proud of her & proud to say she attends hillside. The staff are open, friendly, focused, encouraging, supportive & very welcoming of parents working in partnership with them. Thankyou for making hers first year of schooling the prefect start in her education.”
“We are approaching the end of term and the end of primary school for our eldest son. We have been part of the Hillside community for over 6 years now and we feel extremely grateful. Hillside is a wonderful place to be: caring, inspiring, challenging and enriching. It offers a wonderful, happy and full primary school education. With two younger boys, we luckily have many more years of being Hillside parents! Keep up the good work!”
“I would just like to thank the staff at Hillside for the wonderful teaching and overall experience at the school. My son literally skips to school most mornings and loves his teacher and his class. I am constantly impressed by the facilities and the high standard of care and education offered by the school.”
