About Us

We are very pleased to welcome you to Briar Hill Primary School. As a school we are lucky to benefit from motivated and positive pupils and a strong team of committed staff.

Our ethos and values

Briar Hill Primary School prides itself as being a school based upon values. Our values are:

Aspiration - Always aiming high

Ambition - Being the best we can

Courage - Nothing holds us back

Respect - Always leading by example

Our philosophy supports every child’s individual needs and strengths and recognises that children learn best when they are supported and challenged accordingly in order to allow them to develop their personal confidence and self esteem.

In order to cater for the whole child’s needs we run a variety of after school clubs, which change every term. These include Football, Rugby, Dance, Music, Glee club and Film club to name but a few.

Briar Hill Primary School also has the added benefit of running our own nursery, which takes children from the age of 3. This is an excellent opportunity for the children to develop social skills and become used to the school community before beginning in Reception.
