About Us

September 2009 heralded the long awaited opening of a new school within a new building. Hillside Primary School arose from the amalgamation of two well established, caring and supportive schools.

Hillside is located within an area of considerable social and economic challenges. We have a very high percentage of families in receipt of free school meals, of children with Special Educational Needs, and families receiving support from Social Services. The ward has locally the highest percentage of workless benefits, the second highest percentage of reported domestic violence and significant medical issues. Our community is extremely diverse, with children from a wide range of countries, with an equally wide range of languages. During the last two years our work has been significantly affected by families struggling in the current economic climate.
