Primary Academy


A welcome from the Executive Principal - Mrs Alison Ashcroft


A very warm welcome to Sires Hill Primary Academy - a new school that opened in September 2023.   I am proud to be the Executive Principal of both Sires Hill and Didcot Primary Academy, I have extensive leadership experience and have worked to establish both schools as exceptional places of learning.  Didcot Primary Academy was judged to be outstanding in June 2019, and I have every intention that Sires Hill will be as exceptional.  The schools work closely together to benefit all the children . 


At Sires Hill Primary Academy, children will be immersed in a learning environment that will enable them to be equipped to be successful in a rapidly changing world.  They will learn to be resilient, creative and have a growth mindset.  They will learn that struggle and challenge are vital parts of the learning process and will be able to cope with, and adapt to, change.  They will have hands on experiences and we will continue to foster the natural insatiable curiosity that they are born with into sustaining a life long love of learning.  This will start right from our nursery class and continue into Year 6.  We only have two rules in our school: Be kind and Be brilliant! These underpin everything that we do.  We will put together a staff team who are truly inspirational and who will work with unity to provide the very best educational experience for our children. We will be working closely with our highly successful partner school, Didcot Primary Academy, to support the staff in developing the same curriculum approaches at Sires Hill.  We will be one team working over two sites. 


In addition to this, your child and yourselves as parents will be welcomed into a very special community that will continue to grow and evolve. There are multiple opportunities to get involved and we will keep you informed about your child's progress throughout the year.  





Be Kind, Be Brilliant
