About Park Hill Primary School

This is an exciting time for our school. Only very recently, Park Hill was inspected by OFSTED and we were delighted that they agreed with us – that we continue to be a good school (we like to think that we are very good!) Most importantly, our inspection has helped to galvanise our thinking, we are clearer on our next steps and how some of those areas might move from being judged as good to being judged as being exceptional. We are excited and motivated at that word – being exceptional!

Park Hill is a happy school. Children enjoy coming to school. Parents and carers are supportive – they are keen to work in partnership with staff to improve outcomes for their children. Staff morale is very good, we care about staff and staff retention is excellent.
