Key Information

Park Hill Junior School has 264 children between the ages of seven and eleven. The school is housed in a spacious building with extensive grounds for the children to learn and play. Our facilities include a library, music room, cookery space, craft areas, studio and an ICT suite.

We place a great importance on learning key skills, developing a healthy lifestyle, making friendships and building self-confidence and a sense of self-respect.

We believe that each individual has a unique place within our school family and the contribution he or she will make is important.

In our most recent Ofsted Inspection (January 2017) Park Hill was judged as remaining to be a good school.

Our partner school is Thorns Community Infant School and together we form the Park Hill Thorns Federation; one governing body and one executive head teacher are responsible for both schools. We also work closely with Capella's our onsite before and after school club.
