Head Teacher’s Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for taking an interest in our school.  Hopefully you should be able to find much of the information you seek from our site. If however, you would prefer to call us then please don’t hesitate on 0121 308 5392.

I have been the Head Teacher here at Hill West for just over 15 years having fallen in love with the school on appointment as Deputy Head Teacher in 2004.  Before taking up appointment at Hill West I worked in other Birmingham schools, one located in Kingstanding and the other in Aston and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience working with the children and families in those communities.

An important message shared at our harvest celebrations today. We have a plentiful supply of food and should consider ways in which we can share our good fortune.

Otters apparently love cheese 🧀 too. A wonderful celebration this afternoon.

We all love cheese / right? A wonderful harvest celebration 🎉 this morning.

Ask the children in Otters if their shortcrust pastry was sweet or savoury. Please send us photos of their finished pie, tart, pasty. We can’t wait to see them!
