“Working together to nurture and inspire lifelong learners”

 Welcome to Hill View Primary School’s web site. We hope you find it useful and informative. The intention is to give you a flavour of our school.

Hill View Primary School is a thriving and developing primary school situated in the North Oxfordshire market town of Banbury. We offer our pupils a stimulating and creative curriculum in a positive and nurturing environment. The school has an excellent range of indoor and outdoor facilities and benefits from the leadership of enthusiastic and committed staff.

At Hill View we place children at the centre of all we do and each child is valued and treated as an individual.

As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see Hill View Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01295 251205 to arrange a visit.

We value and celebrate successes in behaviour, attitude and learning. As a school community, we recognise that every individual has the right to feel safe and confident to grasp new challenges.
