Hilltop is a community First School with a Foundation Stage. The school takes children from the term after their third birthday to 9 year olds.
The school was built in 1951 and we have recently celebrated our 65th Birthday. Hilltop had a substantial expansion in 2009 due to the high demand for school places in the Windsor area. The expansion resulted in 4 new classrooms being built in a 2 storey extension. The school is deceptively spacious with very large classrooms. Visitors often compare it to Dr Who’s Tardis!
Hilltop First School has an admission number of 45 children per year group. The number on roll has therefore increased substantially over the last 3 years due to this expansion with the school currently having over 245 children.
The school consists of 9 classes which are divided into 3 teams of 3 classes each. The teams and classes are as follows:
Team Woodland (Foundation Stage) Acorn, Willow and Bluebell classes
Team Enchantment (Key Stage 1, Years 1 & 2) Treetops, Castle and Meadow classes
Team Adventure (Key Stage 2, Years 3 & 4) Ocean, Island and Secret Garden classes
The school was judged Outstanding by OFSTED in both 2007 and 2010.
The 2010 OFSTED report stated that:
“This is an outstanding school because the inspirational leadership of the Headteacher has brought together a highly professional team of staff who care deeply about the learning and welfare of the pupils”
We continue to strive to improve to ensure the outcomes of all our children can be the very best they can be.
