About | Welcome

Welcome to Hill Mead Primary School.

In July 2015, Ofsted rated Hill Mead outstanding in all areas!

There are different ways to be an outstanding school and it is not easy to sustain. These are ours:


“Pupils’ show exceptional attitudes to learning”
“Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary
“The school’s curriculum is rich & exciting
“Pupils make substantial & sustained progress”

We have achieved these things because:


We don’t use extrinsic rewards or consequences such as stickers or behaviour charts.
All our curriculum is freshly designed by our teachers each term – and we never use commercial schemes.
We have an extra teacher in every year group of two classes.

I have been Head teacher here since 2002. The staff team is strong and stable. We have no plans to expand beyond two forms of entry and we are not part of a federation or academy chain.

With all the challenges facing schools today, our parents know that at Hill Mead they can have complete trust that their children will be safe, happy and well prepared for the future.

Finally, we are extremely proud to be a fully inclusive community school where children learn alongside those of all faiths and none, and if there is a vacancy, no child is ever turned away. There is no better example than this of our Hill Mead values.

You don’t need an appointment to visit Hill Mead – you’re welcome anytime. Whenever you visit, I promise we will exceed your expectations.

Best wishes

Richard West, Head teacher
