Sixth Form Applications
Thank you for your interest in Hillcrest Sixth Form. Our Sixth Form Centre is co-educational and inclusive. We offer a number of both 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 pleased with our 2019 results, with value added in all subjects and 56% of grades at A*-B; our progress score, which compares our students with those who have similar GCSE results, was “well above average.” In 2020, we maintained our strong results, with half of our students gaining all A*-B grades; for the ninth consecutive year we achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level. We offer a supportive and caring environment and provide high-quality teaching and learning. 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 . The EPQ 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, employers and training providers. The excellent results that our students achieve have allowed recent Year 13 leavers to gain places at a range of universities, including Russell Group, on a wide range of degree programmes including law, biomedical science and politics.
