Secrets of Success at Clover Hill

We are working hard to ensure our children have the optimum behaviour and attitude to their learning. We want them to be highly motivated and engaged, to have high expectations of themselves and are ambitious to want to achieve success.

We want to remove any barriers to their learning and develop their brain power. Learning brains make smarter decisions and happier societies!

Try new things

We are brave in our learning, we are excited to try new things because if we never try, then we will never know.

Work hard

We know that it’s not luck or looks that make us successful, its all about the effort.


We aim to focus, tune out distractions and be mindful.

Push yourself

We fight our fears and learn to push past doubts.


We use imagination, push boundaries and are resourceful.


We learn from our mistakes and see that finding things tricky is all part of being a learner.

Understand others

We listen to learn about others.

Don't give up

Sir Winston Churchill said “Success isn’t final, failure isn’t fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Congratulations to all of our pupils and staff!

“your school is amongst the top 3% of schools in England… a remarkable achievement”

Welcome to Clover Hill…

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website.

At the heart of Clover Hill Primary School lies a learning community that embraces opportunity and allows every child to reach for the stars and shine. No door is closed; all are inspired to face challenges with confidence and enthusiasm, to be supported to embrace whatever the future holds.

Those of you who know our school will appreciate just how special our learning community is. Our pupils are outstanding and we celebrate on a daily basis their individual and collective efforts. Our hardworking staff and governors have a relentless focus on raising aspiration, raising achievement and raising happy, sociable young learners who are extremely proud to attend our school.

We regularly feature in The Times Educational league tables for the outstanding standards we achieve. We were thrilled to learn that in November 2017, The Sunday Times placed Clover Hill an incredible 4th out of the whole country. We truly thrive on making our children reach their full potential, ensuring they are confident, happy and respectful individuals who have a thirst for knowledge and a true passion to succeed. Happiness is a big part of our Clover Hill ethos and our children certainly seem to excel at this. Happy, confident, well behaved and well mannered, we feel Clover Hill Primary School certainly has a positive and rich impact on their lives.

It is a great privilege to be the Headteacher at Clover Hill. Never a day goes by without me being grateful for the tremendous efforts of our staff and the super relationships that exist within our pupils. We hope that this website informs and involves parents about their child’s experiences at Clover Hill and demonstrates why everyone is so proud to be part of it. We truly value the fantastic partnership of our families; it is a genuine and productive relationship which ensures our children get the very best care, attention and support.

Kind regards Louise Claire Easton: Head Teacher
