Welcome to Carlton Hill Primary School

What do parents and carers say about our school?

Here are some parental comments from our 2023 school survey:

'Carlton Hill is great place for building confidence in children.’

‘I think you do a fabulous job and we're really happy with the education our children are receiving with you.’

‘We love the school, happy learning environment.’

‘Broad syllabus, inclusive spirit, communication, nurturing classes.’

‘Such a great atmosphere in the school. We're so pleased we chose Carlton Hill for our boys.’

‘Staff have been exceptional in helping my child feel settled and supported and considering her individual needs. Responsive and adaptable, incredibly kind and considerate and I feel a great deal of trust in them (which is not a given when your child is very anxious and sometimes reluctant to go to school!)’

‘The staff and school community is fantastic, my child and I feel always welcome and seen by all staff - assembly time and school counselling plus projects are run well - the children feel respected and work well with each other, the school ethos can be seen during pick up time as well, nice friendships with older or younger children - fantastic school office team, always there to help and responding fast as well.’

‘Our family has received incredible support from the school, which exhibits both a personal and professional side. The school's motto is encouraging, and everyone is very understanding. Children smile, appear to be content. Overall, this school is the greatest in the area, and our family owes them a tremendous deal of gratitude for everything they have done for us.’

‘Both of our children are happy at school, they like learning and spending time with their friends. They feel challenged at the appropriate level and they got extra support when they needed it. I think the teaching is high quality with interesting topics - making kids computer games and quizzes based on what they learned was a great idea. We also enjoyed their 10 minutes of fame assemblies.’

Our Headteacher

I am proud to be the Headteacher of Carlton Hill Primary School. Our school vision is ‘Kind Hearts and Curious Minds.’  To this end, we help our children to develop their self-confidence and encourage them to be kind and to respect one another. We also promote a ‘growth mindset’ amongst children (and adults!) which encourages creativity, risk taking and a thirst for learning.

Our long standing ethos “Fair means that everyone gets what they need, not that everyone gets the same” means that we support our children and families, in many different ways, to thrive at our school. Finally, we are part of a strong partnership of local schools, BCPfE (Brighton City Partnership for Education) which give us important opportunities to share good practice, training and resources across the city.

We strongly encourage visits to our one form entry school so that you can meet our friendly children and staff, browse around our well-resourced school and enjoy the award winning grounds!

Please contact us on 01273 - 604966 or email admin@carltonhill.brighton-hove.sch.uk to arrange a visit.

We really look forward to meeting you and your child/ren.
