My journey with Hill Croft started many years ago when my cousin joined the school as a pupil. I have watched him grow up and achieve his best with the help and support of the Hill Croft staff. I thoroughly enjoy my job and count it a privilege to work with the children and families who come through our doors.
Our son really enjoys his school life, for us it is like a home from home. We know he is getting well looked after as well as learning at his own level. We cannot thank Hill Croft enough for their involvement with our family, it has enriched our lives and more importantly kept a beautiful smile on his face everyday.

Hill Croft is an amazing school, by giving my son everything he needs and more, by the fantastic staff and by giving the parents a great support network including group meetings and one to one chats. Every aspect of raising a child with learning difficulties is met by the school. I can't thank them enough!
