About Hillcrest

Welcome to Hillcrest School & Sixth Form Centre Website.

Hillcrest is an 11-16 girls’ school with a mixed sixth form located on an extensive green field site in south west Birmingham.

At Hillcrest, we provide each student with the opportunity to achieve their full potential in both academic and social terms. We hope within these pages you will discover something of how we combine the best of traditional values with the very latest in teaching methods and technologies to inspire our students to succeed in everything they do.

We have very high expectations of our students, and great emphasis is placed on self-discipline; self-respect; hard work; achievement and high standards of behaviour.

We have a highly qualified team of staff committed to delivering quality education to all of our students. Your child will enter a safe and secure environment in which high-quality learning can take place effectively. We are proud to play our part in helping students become the thoughtful, caring, confident and well educated young adults of tomorrow.

We believe our school is an ideal size since it is large enough to provide a full range of subjects and to enable us to employ specialist teachers, but not so large that the individual becomes lost in the crowd.

We warmly invite you to visit us to see for yourself how we work together as a learning community with a friendly atmosphere. We hope you will decide to become a part of the Hillcrest success story.
