Vision and Values



We are a friendly, happy and successful school, set in extensive grounds in the scenic village of South Anston. We cater for children aged 3 - 11 and currently have 251 children including those who attend part time.  Our Foundation Unit provides an important stepping stone between nursery education and full time school, for children aged between 3 and 5. The school also has a Speech and Language Unit for pupils in Key Stage 1 and 2, which caters for pupils across Rotherham borough who have specific needs.


We have a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. We strive to make sure everyone at our school feel valued and part of our school community. Developing the whole child is important to us and that aim is reflected in all we do. We are proud of the achievements of our children and we aim to help every child develop self confidence and a positive approach to life whilst achieving their own individual potential.

We aim to 'Make a Difference' to our pupils and instill in them, a desire to 'Make a Difference' to others and leave a legacy for future generations to come. This is reflected in our newly developed vision.




At Anston Hillcrest we work together as a community to provide a happy, safe and secure learning environment where everyone is valued and shown respect. We value the Mental Health and Well Being of the whole community. We create an inclusive culture, with an ambition of success for all. Our curriculum stimulates and excites the imagination, providing children with the knowledge they need to thrive; be successful learners; meet the challenges of an ever-changing, diverse world and ‘Make a Difference.





Our core values of RESPECT, RESILIENCE, TEAMWORK and KINDNESS are crucial to our relationships and learning. In partnership with parents, carers and the wider community, we promote and sustain these values in our school to enable us to realise our vision.
