Principal’s Welcome 2017-12-14T13:25:24+00:00

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.

If your child is joining us for the first time we welcome you and look forward to a happy and successful partnership with you over the coming years. If you already have a child here, we hope to strengthen our existing links with you to enable us to provide the best education possible.

Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together.When your child starts school, it is not where your job ends and ours begins. It is where our job begins and yours continues!

If you would like any more information about the academy, or to arrange a visit, please contact us. I look forward to meeting you.
