About Us

Based in the heart of Cramlington Village, Northumberland, in the last 5 years Hillcrest School has doubled in size.  We are a 112 place specialist school for pupils aged 11-18. 

All students have Education, Health and Care Plans and their complex needs include autistic spectrum, ADHD, speech & language, attachment and trauma.  Working closely with teaching staff and our in-house intervention team (SaLT, OT, ASC Specialist, Emotional Health and Wellbeing specialists and our therapy dog ‘Morag’ who comes into school every Friday) we aim to develop our students to fulfil their potential with a vision of ‘Aiming High – Dream, Believe, Achieve’.
