A Short Ofsted Inspection took place at our school on Wednesday 7th March 2018.


Update Thursday 8th March 2018 from the Headteacher:

I am delighted to be able to inform you that following the inspection carried out on Wednesday 7th March 2018, Hillside Special School was once again judged to be ‘Outstanding’. I am thrilled that this judgement by Ofsted confirms that we are continuing to provide an outstanding education and provision for our pupils.

I would like to recognise the efforts and hard work of all the staff at Hillside. We are all very proud of this result and excited as we move forward with further developments at Hillside, continuing to strive for excellence.

Ofsted will issue a formal School Short Inspection Report in due course. Once received, this will be available via our website.

Yours faithfully

M Kelly

  • Achievement of pupils – Outstanding
  • Quality of teaching – Outstanding
  • Behaviour and safety of pupils – Outstanding
  • Leadership and  management – Outstanding
