National Support School

In February 2015 Hilton Primary Academy was selected for a top role supporting schools in challenging circumstances. Shirley Davison, our Principal, is one of 137 head teachers to be appointed to the role of National Leader of Education (NLE) in the latest recruitment round.

NLE's along with staff in their school - designated a National Support School - use their success and professionalism to provide additional leadership capability in other schools.
