Blue Bell Hill

Primary School



Blue Bell Hill Primary School sits proudly in the heart of the diverse community of St Ann’s, in the city of Nottingham.

The school offers a safe, welcoming and creative environment which allows the children, families and staff to thrive and reach their full potential.

We ‘Aim High’ and offer a stimulating curriculum which allows all children to achieve their best; experience a wide range of activities and most importantly have fun whilst learning.  This is achieved through: high quality teaching; excellent pastoral support and many exiting links with local businesses and partnerships.  The children in our school make better than expected progress in the core subjects whilst also discovering how to be accomplished, independent learners with skills that will stay with them for life.

The school breeds a culture of ‘Respect and Care’ where anyone who comes through the door feels valued and supported.

"Your extremely high expectations are reflected in the good quality of provision, the dedication of staff and the exemplary attitudes of pupils to their learning. Pupils spoken with said that they felt safe in school. They said that they are very confident that should they have a problem it would be dealt with quickly. As one pupil commented, ‘This is a safe and happy school.’Behaviour is managed well. Pupils’ behaviour is good both in class and around school. In class, pupils show considerable pride in their work." OFSTED 2019

As a school we are very proud of the achievements of our pupils and the wider community and we like to ‘Celebrate Success’.  Pupils’ good attendance, behaviour, work and reading are regularly celebrated and pupils are encouraged to take pleasure in the success of others.

Blue Bell Hill is more than just a school.  It is an extended family that works together with all involved to deliver the very best possible outcomes for all those we are lucky enough to teach.

The children, staff and families will tell you
