You Say…

“My son has enjoyed Hill Top School from the first week he started. He has been like a different little boy: for all of the right reasons! Thank you.”

Mrs Mounsey


Our son has been attending Hill Top School for three years and has continued to develop in such a fantastic environment. The facilities available, such as the Autism Centre, together with the team of teachers and classroom assistants who are all focused on every child’s needs ensure his education is in great hands. Hill Top School’s attention to detail means that every child really does get an individual education programme specifically for their needs. We feel both privileged and thankful that he is so happy in such a wonderful and caring school. Mandy Smith
