School Description

Hill Top is a secondary school for students with moderate learning difficulties and with Autistic Spectrum, including severe Autistic Spectrum. All students have a statement of special educational needs. The vast majority of students are boys and are of White British origin. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well below the national average. More than half the students are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium. This is additional funding for those who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. This is well above the national average. Since the last inspection, the school is now part of a hard federation with Dryden School, there has been a change in the headteacher, a new Chair of the Governing Body and a revised designation of the sixth form. Students and staff are to move imminently into a new school building on the site.
