Our Summer Fair on Sunday 3rd July was a huge success and took an amazing £1,943 which may increase even further with matched funding and additional donations! 

A huge thank you to everyone who came and supported the fair – we hope you had a wonderful time, we certainly did. It was fantastic to see so many families enjoying our first big fundraising event for several years and the weather was kind to us. It was also lovely to welcome so many staff and previous students and their families too.

Thanks go to those of you who could not attend on the day itself but supported our fundraising efforts by donating tombola prizes and buying raffle tickets ahead of the event - the lucky winners will be receiving their prizes very soon.

We cannot thank everyone that supported us enough, but particular thanks go to those companies and individuals who so generously donated prizes for our raffle and silent auction, namely:  Boulder Brighton, Brighton Kettlebells, Brighton Palace Pier, British Airways i360, Fatto a Mano, Felicitous Dreams, Ferring Country Centre, Jefferies Funeral Directors, Kat Marcus, Mandy Simmerling, Quercus Nursery, Revitalise Brighton, Ruby’s Bakery, The Grand Brighton, Unique Treatments, Vimto, Volk’s Electric Railway.

About our School

Hill Park School is a maintained specialist school for pupils aged 4 -16 with either a moderate , severe or profound learning disability.  All pupils attending the school have an EHCP.

The needs of our pupils range from having Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) , Physical Disabilities , Autism (ASC), Moderate (MLD) or Severe Learning Disabilities (SLD). As a learning disability Hub we are not a school for pupils who have a primary need of Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), there is an excellent separate SEMH Hub in the City. 

Following our merger in September 2018 we are based across two sites.

Since September 2019 the Upper Site is for Secondary pupils . There are 12  classes from Y7 - Y11 grouped both by year group and primary need. Classes are therefore organised into those for students with

  • severe learning disability and autism
  • severe learning disability without autism                                                              
  • moderate learning disability and autism                               
  • moderate learning disability without autism
  • we also have one class of Key Stage 3 and 4 students with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities 

This organisation model ensures that all students have the learning environment and approach to teaching and learning that will maximise thier progress across all areas. 

The Lower Site is for Primary aged pupils YR - Y6. We have 12 classes grouped in the same way as the secondary site. Once again we offer classroom environments and approaches to teaching and learning that maximise our younger pupils' progress. 

Although we are a generic specialist school we do not offer a generic model of teaching and learning - come and have a look round to see us in action!
