Message from the Headteacher

Dear Parents

I would like to welcome you to Hilton Primary School.

The village of Hilton is on the outskirts of Derby close to the intersection of the A38 and A50 and a five minute drive from the Toyota plant at Burnaston.

Housing in Hilton has expanded enormously in recent years and the school has also expanded rapidly to reflect the demand for places. At 700 on roll, Hilton is Derbyshire’s largest primary school. We pride ourselves on having maintained our small village school roots and ethos, where each child is known and valued as an individual.

The school offers outstanding facilities. All our accommodation is either new-build or recently modernised. The main building comprises spacious teaching areas, two halls, a fully stocked library and computer suite. The new Acorn Block opened in September 2007 offering a further four classrooms. This currently houses our Year 6 children. We also have a small swimming pool on site. Outside, there are spacious hard play facilities and two fields.

Hilton Primary is an exciting and vibrant school with high standards of achievement and a history of successful OFSTED inspections. It is a school that we are all immensely proud to be a part of.

I hope that you will find this website useful and that it will give you a feel for the school as well as providing important information.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely,
