At Hillcrest we have very high expectations for our students. Great emphasis is placed on hard work, achievement and high standards of behaviour.
UCAS & HIGHER EDUCATION
Sixth Form students at Hillcrest receive a wealth of support from tutors and wider educational support mentors to help students transition beyond Sixth Form education, to higher education and or higher education connected apprenticeships.
We have carefully, collated guidance links to information to inform our students on applying to universities through UCAS and companies supporting apprenticeships through the UK.
