Weekly News

We are setting up second hand uniform shops on Primary and Secondary sites. As part of our move to be more Eco-friendly school, combined with the rising cost of living, we are encouraging the use of second-hand uniforms. 

If you would like some uniform please let the class team know via the home school book (indicating items wanted, size and quantity). The uniform will be given to you as soon as we have the sizes that you require in stock. There is no charge for second hand uniforms. If you would like to make a donation for items, then this can be done via Parent Pay. 

If you have any clean (no stains) uniform that is in good condition that you would like to donate to the second hand shop then please send into school with your child. Depending on items received we may have to stop donations for as short periods as we have limited storage but will let you know when items are needed again.

About our School

Hill Park School is a maintained specialist school for pupils aged 4 -16 with either a moderate , severe or profound learning disability.  All pupils attending the school have an EHCP.

The needs of our pupils range from having Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) , Physical Disabilities , Autism (ASC), Moderate (MLD) or Severe Learning Disabilities (SLD). As a learning disability Hub we are not a school for pupils who have a primary need of Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), there is an excellent separate SEMH Hub in the City. 

Following our merger in September 2018 we are based across two sites.

Since September 2019 the Upper Site is for Secondary pupils . There are 12  classes from Y7 - Y11 grouped both by year group and primary need. Classes are therefore organised into those for students with

  • severe learning disability and autism
  • severe learning disability without autism                                                              
  • moderate learning disability and autism                               
  • moderate learning disability without autism
  • we also have one class of Key Stage 3 and 4 students with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities 

This organisation model ensures that all students have the learning environment and approach to teaching and learning that will maximise thier progress across all areas. 

The Lower Site is for Primary aged pupils YR - Y6. We have 12 classes grouped in the same way as the secondary site. Once again we offer classroom environments and approaches to teaching and learning that maximise our younger pupils' progress. 

Although we are a generic specialist school we do not offer a generic model of teaching and learning - come and have a look round to see us in action!
