At Hillside, we pride ourselves on providing excellent learning opportunities not just for the children in our local community, but the adults as well. We have established links with Kirklees College and other education providers, in order to provide free classes in a range of subjects. The Hub now has it's own direct line - 07578044989, so you don't need to go through the school office any more. You can also text us on this number. The Hub has it's own website too at www.castlecommunityhub.org. You can also find it on Facebook.
