Pool Update: We have made a decision NOT to open the school pool to the public over the Christmas break this year.  Despite a lot of hard work, we are not quite there yet in terms of satisfying our health and safety requirements.  We do hope to have this open next year with keys available for after school and weekends.  We will keep you updated at the beginning of the school year regarding this.  Thanks to the team on the PTA for their hard work with all the progress made to date! It will pay off in the long term for our community!

What makes Sunnyhills such a unique school?

It is a place where children are articulate, caring and respectful, displaying a strong sense of citizenship; a place endorsed by a safe and nurturing community. Our parents have high expectations of their children, matched by unconditional support.  At Sunnyhills we strive to unlock the potential in every child as we grow lifelong learners.

Our business first and foremost is children’s learning; preparing our young people with the skills they need for the future. The Sunnyhills’ ‘Learning for life’ philosophy fosters independence, curiosity and critical thinking.  Students are engaged, and lead their own learning pathways through inquiry based topics.  They display a ‘have a go’ attitude and are not afraid to take responsible risks. 

Opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom are plentiful and diverse.  Children’s learning is supported by high quality teaching, well resourced classrooms, a music specialist and we have learning assistants in all of our junior classrooms. The Arts, sports and culture are valued and are an integral part of our varied programme.
