Developing these LIFE SKILLS is CRUCIAL in EVERY child’s development. Here at Fort Hill Integrated Primary School from an early age we aim to provide a learning environment which enables the children to become familiar with, and strive to develop these KEY LIFE LONG SKILLS during their time at our school.
