Fort Hill Community School
|Motto||Learning For Life|

The school was built within the ramparts of an iron age hill fort, Winklebury Ring. Around the school perimeter some of the old ditch site still remains. It is thought that the Celts once established a farming society around this fort.

There were formally two sets of uniform for the Winter and Summer terms. Recently these have been withdrawn, and what was previously the Winter uniform is now worn all year round. The winter uniform is a shirt, tie, black trousers, embroidered sweatshirt and school blazer. In the summer, the students are able to leave their blazer, but it's their option.
When the school first opened in 1977 the uniform was brown trousers, green shirts, brown tie with green diagonal stripes and a brown blazer. A few years later a vote was taken on shirt colour and the top year were then allowed to wear white shirts to distinguish them from the younger years.
