Ofsted Report (September 2013)
“Students in the sixth form receive outstanding information, advice and guidance”
“Achievement in the sixth form is good and results are improving strongly. By the end of the sixth form, results are at least in line with, and often above national average for most subjects. Results are typically stronger in vocational subjects, in which students are making outstanding progress”
“Teaching in the sixth form is good”
Thank you for your interest in The Oaks Sixth Form at Hillcrest School.
Our Sixth Form Centre is co-educational and inclusive. We offer a number of academic and Level 3 vocational courses with a range of pathways, which are taught by teachers who have expertise in their subjects.
Student performance at Hillcrest Sixth Form is excellent and we were extremely pleased with our 2015 A-Level and Level 3 BTEC results. Again, we achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level with 20% of A Level entries being graded A*/A.
We offer a supportive and caring environment and provide high quality teaching and learning. Each student is allocated a Personal Tutor whom they will meet with 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 at Russell Group Universities on a wide range of degree programmes including law, biomedical science and politics.
I hope that you find the information on our website both informative and useful and that, having read it, you will choose to become a student at The Oaks Sixth Form at Hillcrest School. Visits to the sixth form are recommended and we look forward to receiving your application.
