About Our School

Welcome to Windmill Hill Academy


Inspiring Passionate Life Long Learners



On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Windmill Hill Academy.


Windmill Hill Academy is at the heart of our local community and we strive to work closely with families of the school and the local community to maintain a successful partnership that thrives on our values and vision. Windmill Hill sits on a wonderful  site in the middle of Launceston. At Windmill Hill Academy, we make the most outdoor learning opportunities, both in our school grounds and within the local area.


At Windmill Hill Academy, we all believe that Primary Education is an important stage in any child's life. Their experience at our school will lay the foundation for all their future learning and we strive to give every child the best start possible in their school careers.

This, of course, is dependent on many factors and one of the most important of these is the relationship and partnership between home and school. I hope we will work closely together throughout your child's time with us and that you will always feel welcome in school. There are many ways in which you can become involved in the life of the school and I hope you will feel part of our school community.

We make every effort to keep parents informed of all the relevant areas of school life affecting their child, through newsletters, the website, social media sites (Facebook and Twitter), ClassDojo, parental showcases, workshops and parental consultation evenings. Please, never hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns about your child's life in school. Your child's teacher or I will always be happy to talk to you at a mutually convenient time.

I very much look forward to a happy and productive relationship with you over the coming years.

Kind regards,


Mrs Abby Bassett

Head of School
