Our Perspective

How we see Hitherfield School

Ann Scott founded Hitherfield in 1991 after a career within the Halton school board, and she remains at the head of the school today, giving a nice continuity to the development of the programs. The intention throughout has been to offer something that wasn’t offered in the public board, principally a more individualized, caring approach to learning. The school is small, and the size is one of its strengths. While it’s not a country school in name, the feel is comparable to schools that situate themselves within that movement—namely a learning environment that very much reflects the community that supports it. Parents are important to the life of the school, and are encouraged to take a role that will express their skills and interests. The ideal student is one looking for something more personal approach, one more attentive to the abilities, experience, and passion that students bring into the classroom.

Message from school leadership

Ann Scott, Principal
B.A., B.Ed., Principal’s Certification, OCT

Hitherfield students are happy, eager to learn, and proud of what they are able to accomplish. Our teachers are dedicated, willing to listen, and determined to help your child reach potential. I encourage you to participate in your child’s learning experience by communicating with teachers frequently, helping in the classroom or at special events, and by consistently nurturing a positive attitude toward the learning process and your child’s successes.

The interaction between parents, staff and students at Hitherfield is very important. Parent help, expertise and interest enable us to provide a broader scope of experiences than would otherwise be possible.
We are looking forward to the year ahead, to new as well as familiar faces, and to helping the children meet challenges and achieve excellence in whatever they do, according to their individual abilities.

Thank you for choosing Hitherfield for your children!

Ann Scott, Principal
