Please book your place with the school office by emailing as we are limiting numbers for each tour. Please include your name, your child's first name and date of birth and a contact number.


For parents interested in applying to Hillmead School, we are very pleased to be able to provide you with a virtual tour of the school, and a talk by our Headteacher, Mrs Michelle Shenston. We hope you will find them both informative and entertaining - please enjoy!

Little Ladybirds Pre-School


Little Ladybirds is an onsite pre-school for Nursery parents to access their free 30 hours entitlement in the afternoons. The pre-school takes place in the nursery classroom so there is a seamless transition in care for the children staying on after the school nursery class ends at 12pm. It is also open to children 2 years and up. The pre-school is run by Early Birds and Night Owls - please contact them directly for more information and to book a place.
