Hillview is an excellent school. On a day-to-day basis the atmosphere is calm, allowing the students to work well yet also vibrant with so many exciting events happening all year round. We have an outstanding Performing Arts faculty and facilities and the school is committed to embedding creativity around the whole school.
I have taught in a range of schools across the education sector and can honestly say that Hillview has something very special. The friendliness of the staff and amazing support they give to the students makes this a happy environment where students feel safe and engaged in learning.
The resources and space we have for creating music mean that there is always something exciting happening in our department, from the extra-curricular clubs and instrumental lessons through to our annual school musical and concerts.
I have been at Hillview since 2010, having worked as a chef for over 25 years in various organisations. I do a lot of voluntary work with under-privileged children outside of work and I find that being amongst the youngsters on a day-to-day basis in school is fantastic! The students are fab and we have a great laugh about my ‘old-fashioned’ music mixes which sound out in the canteen during the day. It’s a great place to be working.
