Welcome to Hillwood Primary School’s website!

SwingsAt Hillwood we work hard with our parents, pupils and staff to create a warm and welcoming environment where pupils can learn and grow.  Hillwood is a fantastic place to learn and work. As a former P7 pupil said we are “A small school with a big heart!” Our school community is proud of this statement and live up to it daily. To find out more about Hillwood Primary and what is happening this term, please explore our website, follow us on Twitter @HillwoodPS or use the ‘Contact Us’ section of the website to get in touch.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Games @the Hub


P6/7 enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Forrester/St. Augustine’s High School for Games at the Hub where the group split into two groups for hockey and football. For the first half of the day, the children rotated around different activities to build up their skills, and then after lunch took part in a tournament.  No trophies this year but a great opportunity to keep fit and to meet children from other schools.


We did it!! As part of our World Book Day celebrations, Hillwood pupils took part in a worldwide Bumper Book Quiz in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people taking part in a book quiz. With 6,388 people, in 62 locations across the world (including Hillwood!) all quizzing at the same time, we successfully broke the record – well done!

Burns Supper

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Hillwood’s Burns Supper this week, we had a fantastic turn out with children and adults both enjoying a burl across the dancefloor. A huge congratulations to Calvin who won both the Burns Poetry Competition and the raffle! Well done also to Lucie, Warren and Morgan who were this year’s runners up.

Thank you also to our community members who helped to support the supper. The fantastic ceilidh band, Ceilidh Caleerie, delivered a brilliant performance (as usual!); haggis from Boghall Broxburn Butchers; donations from Morrison, Tesco and Sainsbury; and of course delicious potatoes supplied and prepared by Sophie’s parents. Thank you!

The Scottish theme continues today with Primary 6/7’s Community Café. Why not pop down at 10am to enjoy a bowl of lentil soup or stovies? Entry is £1 – see you there!
