Working at Hillside Primary School

Hillside Primary School is a growing school in the South East of Ipswich. We are currently in the process of becoming three form entry across all year groups and currently have 585 pupils on roll.

As well as having year groups EYFS through to Year 6 we also run our own Pre-School within our site. The school is at the heart of the local community and boasts numerous external links. Over the last academic year we have made giant strides to improve the overall effectiveness of the school.

We are always keen to hear from practitioners who are willing to work alongside us to continue the improvements and stride towards the future success of the school.
