Admissions Policy

Students are admitted to Hillcrest each year with regard to the authority admissions policy up to the standard limit of 120 places. The criteria for admissions are as follows:

  • Students who are looked after by the Local Authority (Children in Public Care); who will be guaranteed a place at their nearest community school if it is not possible to meet any of their preferences.

  • Students who have elder brothers and sisters who will still be in attendance at the school in September of the current academic year.

  • Students who live nearest the school by straight line measurement.

Students with a statement of special educational needs/EHC plan is required to be admitted to the school that is named in the statement/plan. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the named school.
