Thank you for visiting this website!

Climbing the Hill was created 5 years ago as a way of spreading best practice and sharing ideas between teachers.  I believe passionately that schools improve 'bottom up' rather than 'top down' and wanted to celebrate the amazing work taking place in schools.  Giving away our best ideas forces us to create new ones!    

I hope this website serves as a useful resource and reference point for teachers everywhere.
