Just three years after being named Independent School of the Year, Hill House has again been shortlisted for the National Independent School’s Awards.
This year, the school was nominated in the category of the Outstanding Community Initiative, based on the remarkable success of the Robin Hood Music Festival, which is now in its sixth year. The festival, which is the brainchild of Mrs Bodman and Mrs Poulton, has grown to be one of the most prestigious and best supported events of its type. Running to 6 days, it now attracts over 500 children and 40 schools from across the region.
Headmaster David Holland said ‘we are delighted that Hill House and the Robin Hood Festival have been honoured in this way. Music at Hill House has gone from strength to strength in recent years; for our local festival to receive national recognition, and for the school to be back at these most prestigious education awards, is a fantastic testament to everyone’s hard work.’
The final winner of the award will be announced at a gala dinner at Mayfair’s Grosvenor House Hotel in November.
