As a school, our motto is ‘Making a difference’. We aim to 'Make a difference' to our pupils and raise their awareness of real life issues which changes their outlook on the world and challenges them to make a difference to themselves, our community and the wider world.
Imaginative curriculum design is important to us and we believe that reading should be at the heart everything we do. We aim to provide real life, purposeful and authentic learning opportunities to engage the children and make learning memorable. We want our children to be thinkers: find alternative options, solve problems, take risks, make links between learning and communicate effectively.
At Anston Hillcrest, we are incredibly fortunate to have a dedicated, skilled and passionate staff team who work with the children every day to create a positive and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. They have a shared passion to help our children achieve their very best.

Developing the whole child is incredibly important to us and we are immensely proud of our children’s achievements.
When not impacted upon by a global pandemic, we offer a wide range of after school clubs and breakfast club and are proud members of the Rotherham Children’s University.
We believe that true success is achieved when we work in genuine partnership with our children, parents, staff, governors and the wider school community and that is reflected in all we do.
