Welcome to Hillside Academy

Welcome to our website.  Hillside is a small community of dedicated, hardworking, happy learners, supported by a team of creative, exciting and focused teachers, teaching assistants and support staff.  Hillside is going places.  We are committed to providing an experience that inspires beyond measure, for each of our learners and families.

At Hillside, we choose our shoes carefully – read about our Core Values Policy, Hillside Shoes, here.

If you would like to know more about how to get involved with a small academy with big aspirations, or if you would like to enquire about a school place, give us a call!  Educating is about more than schooling, we believe that the whole community has a part to play.  If you feel that you could offer a contribution, then pull on your trainers and come and talk to us!

We can’t wait to meet you!

Happy Retirement

After many years at Hillside / Balby Street and working with many children, we are saying a sad farewell to Mrs Cooper.

Mrs Cooper is taking up retirement and spending some well deserved time with her husband, who has also recently retired. We wish both Mr and Mrs Cooper a long and happy retirement together. We all hope that you will come back to visit us.

Mrs Cooper has asked to say a huge thank you for all the lovely gifts and cards she has received from the children and their parents.




Happy Halloween

The children have really impressed (and scared us!) with their amazing costumes. We have had some fabulous entries for our pumpkin competition and today we have raised 34.00  in our Halloween treat sale.

Have a lovely half term everyone and stay safe. See you on the 2nd November.

Mrs Cockayne
