Welcome To Hillcrest Academy!

We are a friendly, vibrant two form entry primary academy in Chapeltown, Leeds with over 400 children aged 3 to 11. We have a strong ethos of inclusion, encouraging all our children to be confident and caring of themselves and those around them. We set high standards of respect, hard work and achievement for all adults.  We are constantly striving to provide our children with the best possible education and opportunities in every way.

At Hillcrest our aim is to foster a love of learning and develop enquiring minds; enable all our children to overcome barriers and reach their full potential; ensure that our children value themselves as unique individuals, celebrating diversity and respecting differences and to work together as a community to enable all our children to develop as responsible citizens.
