Welcome to Tower Hill Primary
As Headteacher of Tower Hill Primary School, I am delighted and tremendously proud to welcome you to the website of our Outstanding (Ofsted 2011) school and trust that you will find it interesting, informative and vibrant – rather like our children!
People visiting Tower Hill speak of its warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere; its variety, its creativity and the way in which it develops each and every child's potential. To create this atmosphere and ethos we pride ourselves on our teamwork. Every member of staff at Tower Hill is fully aware of, and is committed to their role in the school vision. Every child feels proud to be part of this, and proud to belong.
Tower Hill is also about fun: fun to learn - fun to live. Our values – Respect, Fairness, Friendliness, High Expectations and Achievement – were drawn up by us all, pupil and adult, to reflect the qualities which we feel our children need for them to develop socially, emotionally and academically.
The variety of after-school activities, coupled with the sports provision available, means that your child has the best possible chance of developing into a well rounded individual in his/her time at Tower Hill.
If you would like to see what life at Tower Hill is like, feel free to contact school to arrange an informal visit. We are proud to show off our Outstanding school and welcome you to share in it.
Best wishes from us all,

All of the children in school know these Key Values very well which is evident every day through their conduct and approach to their learning.

Writing Star of the Month
As the bombs blew up, the sound of guns, grenades and smoke filled the cold air. Looking around, I saw people suffering gunshots and saying their last words of hop and/or love. I felt heart broken and hopeless. As the tanks came in, the battle got bloodier and more intense. I was petrified. "Is this the end?" I thought as I saw the moon rising or sinking - it was hard to tell. Curious, I hoped my family and friends were OK. As a tornado of bullets passed me, I sprinted passed suicide corner with a sigh of relief. As I got more and more nervous, I felt soulless. "It's over" I thought.

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Christmas Fayre on Friday. We raised a staggering amount of money - over £3000 - with the final total still climbing!
There were many fun activities to take part in and amazing Christmas decorations and toys to buy.
Santa came to visit which was extremely exciting for everybody.
Over the next week, there will still be some wonderful items for sale after school as well as the Book Fayre - an ideal opportunity to buy some Christmas presents.

Art Week 2018
This week all of the children at Tower Hill have had an exciting week participating in a wide range of art activities as well as looking at the work of famous artists. They have all produced some fantastic work in their classes culminating in class exhibitions which were open on Friday afternoon for viewing. Amongst the art produced were explosive firework pictures, fantastic weaving, brilliant batik, stunning photographs, awesome crayon art, lovely dot paintings and marvellous mosaics.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Ken, our visiting artist. He worked with all classes to produce some fantastic abstract art as well as some stunning landscapes which the children are extremely proud of.
Last but not least, we would like to say thank you to John from Images for creating our hall exhibition - the children produced some stunning art work.
Well done Tower Hill for an amazing art week.
