Hill View Infant Academy

Believe and Achieve

Welcome to Our School

The purpose of this website is to introduce you to Hill View Infant Academy and to provide information you may find useful.

We provide education for children aged 3 to 7 years. We have a large nursery for 104 children aged 3-4 and then are a four form entry school from Reception to Year 2.  We are part of a MAT (Multi-Academy Trust) with Hill View Junior Academy.

As our reputation and OFSTED reports (2001 and 2007) fully endorse, we have many strengths. These include very high standards of teaching throughout the school, demanding expectations of children’s achievements and behaviour. In addition to this we firmly believe in providing all children with a wide range of opportunities, sporting, musical, cultural, recreational and social. We offer extended care for both nursery and school children from 8.00am to 6.00pm. 

Our aim is to provide each child with an education that will equip them to become responsible citizens, to make informed choices having both self respect and respect for others. To achieve this we provide an extensive range of opportunities beyond the school day, in a caring and safe atmosphere.
Please enjoy browsing our website where you will find much more about the life of our school.

Kind regards

Claire Smith

Head teacher

  • What a wonderful time we all had this morning celebrating the end of term with a special Christmas sing-a-long. We had a special visit from Santa who gave each child a special gift.
  • Once again some of our children visited Victoria Lodge to sing Christmas carols to the residents.
  • Some of our school council visited Bede Tower to deliver Christmas hampers this week. All our children brought in things to go in to the hampers. We talked about how we can help others at Christmas time especially people with no money or possessions.
