At Hillcrest we have very high expectations for our students. Great emphasis is placed on hard work, achievement and high standards of behaviour.
Thank you for your interest in the Sixth Form at Hillcrest School.
Our Sixth Form Centre is co-educational and inclusive. We offer a number of academic and Level 3 BTEC courses with a range of pathways, which are taught by teachers who have expertise in their subjects.
Student performance for A Level and BTEC is outstanding and we were extremely pleased with our recent A-Level and Level 3 BTEC results. Again, we achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level for the third year running, with 57% of entries graded at A*-B. We offer a supportive and caring environment and provide high-quality teaching and learning.
Each student is allocated a personal tutor with whom they will meet to review academic progress. A system is in place to ensure that pastoral advice and guidance is always at hand to support students throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
Students are provided with the opportunity to gain additional qualifications through the Enrichment programme, every Wednesday. The Extended Project Qualification is available for students in both Year 12 and Year 13 to complete over one or two years. During Enrichment, students are taken step by step through their university application and receive advice and guidance from a range of visiting speakers from higher education, apprenticeships, employment or training.
The excellent results that our students achieve have allowed recent Year 13 leavers to gain places on a wide range of degree programmes, including Architecture, Biomedical Science, History, and Law.
We hope that you find the information linked below both informative and useful and that, having read it, you will choose to become a student at Hillcrest School. Visits to the sixth form are recommended and we look forward to receiving your application.
