Hillocks Primary Academy

Hillocks is a warm, welcoming and inclusive academy for ages 3 to 11, where we strive to ensure that every single child feels safe and happy.
All children are welcome here – we celebrate diversity and embrace differences. We have a set of core principles that we work to, the main one being kindness.
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 curriculum is rich and varied and is designed to inspire children to want to learn, whilst at the same time encourage them to push themselves to achieve even more. We want every child, regardless of their starting points to have the best possible life chances.

About our school experience


The aim of the school experience days are to provide information on the routes into teaching and answer any individual questions on the teacher training process. All school experience days include a session led by our experts on the routes into teaching.

From the routes into teaching session you will gain information on the ITE application process, the interview process, what to do to gain experience, finance and bursaries.

It is also a great opportunity for you to observe teaching and learning in a range of classes, and where possible to meet newly qualified teachers and student teachers. We hope to give you a rounded experience of a full school day and look forward to meeting you!
