Welcome to Mrs Hill


5th January 2018

The appointment of Mrs Susannah Hill as the new Headteacher heralds a new dawn for Springdale First School.  Mrs Hill joins Springdale from Swanage Primary School where she has been Headteacher for two years.  Prior to this appointment, Mrs Hill has had a range of experience including working for the local authority leading EYFS as well as being Deputy Head at local primary schools.

Mrs Hill has been enjoying learning about all the different aspects of Springdale school life - from teaching, learning and behaviour systems to IT, office systems and governance to name just a few areas. Every day she has been learning a little more by talking with staff and children, Friends of Springdale representatives, meeting the lunchtime team, members of the Hamwic Education Trust, Hillary Trust Headteachers and our extremely supportive Chair of Governors. 

All the staff, parents and children at the School wish Mrs Hill many happy years in her new role and success in leading the children on their exciting learning journey.


"Pupils thrive at the school, developing outstanding attitudes to learning due to the excellent relationships they form with adults and the very practical, interesting and challenging lesson activities provided. Their excellent behaviour is evident in all aspects of school life."
