Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website which is full of useful information and lovely photographs which give a wonderful insight into life at Hillside.

Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision. We are very proud of Hillside Primary School and we would normally invite and encourage you to come in during the school day to see our bright, welcoming school, feel our calm, happy, hard-working atmosphere and see our children busy and enjoying their learning. During the current times, we are still welcoming prospective parents into school, but visits will take place once the children have gone home. Visits can take place at a mutually convenient time Tuesday – Friday from 3:20pm.  During the visit, you will be given a tour and have the opportunity to speak with myself , other staff and see our learning environment.

I look forward to meeting you.

Mrs K Schonau

Admissions Policies

Changing Schools Stoke-on-Trent City Council

If you are applying for your child to change school part way through the year, because you have moved or want your child to move to a different school, talk to your child’s current school and the school you would like them to move to.

You must apply directly to the school you want your child to move to. If they do not have a place for your child, you can approach another school. The Local Authority will send you a letter confirming the refusal and explaining how you can appeal the decision.
