Pedagogy

At Hill House we believe learning is collaborative. Teachers work with pupils to create lessons that are dynamic, exciting and promote deep learning. We believe in helping our learners reach independence and encourage them to always strive for excellence. We believe pupils should be encouraged to take responsibility, embrace risks, persevere, enjoy challenges and above all love learning.
