What People Say About Us


"I have noticed how hard you have worked since I came here.  Exciting times for year 6 who went to Lockerbie, year 5 went to Cranedale and year 5 went to CBBC and had a lot of fun.  I have also noticed that all the teachers are kind and are organised for the summer fair.  Year 5 are doing splat the rat and feed the clown.

I have also noticed that Mr Barnsley, our caretaker, has done a really good job of  keeping the school tidy.  Mrs Nuttall and Mrs Conway do a very good job at making really good lunches and desserts and I really like my lunches and desserts.


I have made quite a few friends because I have settled in well at our school.


I wanted to write you this letter because I have seen you and all the teachers and the rest of the staff work hard and I thought that I would tell you and say thank you."




 “I love Park Hill because the school is small and the teachers are really friendly”


“Park Hill is an extraordinary school that is a positive experience for all children”


“Leaving this school behind is the hardest thing I will ever have to do”


“The school always brings out the star inside each of its pupils”



“Being in education ourselves, for us one of the most important factors in our child’s education is that she is happy, safe and well looked after.  I can honestly say that this is how Park Hill delivers.  When your daughter looks forward to Monday mornings, you know you have made the right decision!

The staff all play a pivotal role in the development of each and every child’s moral, and spiritual  and educational journey.

We can’t recommend this place highly enough.”


Thank you



“Our children attended Park Hill from nursery until year 2 and year 4, prior to our move overseas.  We are full of praise for this wonderful school and the staff.  The school promotes a caring ethos where children are taught Christian values and respect for themselves and each other.  Children are encouraged to achieve, and their successes however small or big are recognised and celebrated.  Our Children thrived at Park Hill school, they are well mannered, respectful, happy, confident children.  Choosing this school was the best decision we have ever made, and leaving it to move overseas was the hardest.  Our daughter 5 has recently been assessed at her new school as having a reading age of 8.7 years.  Our son age 8 has been chosen to speak in front of 400 parents and pupils, this is due to his confidence in public speaking, developed at Park Hill school.  Children thrive at Park Hill, due to its nurturing family environment, dedicated teaching staff and families who share the same hopes and aspirations for their children.”


“Sending our son to St Joseph’s Park Hill was undoubtedly the best decision made.  To see him blossom and flourish into the young man he is today makes us incredibly proud.  Consequently getting to know every member of staff has made the journey even more wonderful and memorable.  Your passion and drive shine through giving every child a superb platform in life.  It’s with heavy hearts that we reflect and accept that this part of his journey has come to an end.  Our son has encountered much in his life and it’s an opportune moment to say a big thank you for your continued support through his highs and lows.  Your generosity and love hand no limits, you are all highly regarded.  It’s been our pleasure being part of the family unit that makes St Joseph’s so special.”


“My son is a loving, kind yet strong willed little boy who has been cared for and nurtured by the amazing staff at Park Hill.”


 “Staff are tuned in with children’s strengths and weaknesses and give support where needed.”


“Diversity is evident in the teachings and core values of the school.”


 “An oasis in a sometimes crazy world.”


 “My son’s wonderful achievement at Park Hill is down to a fantastic team of people who go the extra mile. Thank you.”


 “We love coming to Park Hill. The pupils are wonderful, the staff are friendly and helpful, the school is spotless plus we get a lovely lunch!  Thankyou and we look forward to seeing you soon!”
