Sixth Form Subjects
Thank you for your interest in the Sixth Form at Hillcrest School.
Our Sixth Form Centre is co-educational and inclusive. We offer a number of academic and Level 3 BTEC courses, all taught by teachers who have expertise in their subjects.
Student performance for A Level and BTEC is outstanding and we were extremely pleased with our recent A-Level and Level 3 BTEC results. Again, we achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level for the ninth year running, with the majority of students achieving A*-B in all their subjects. We offer a supportive and caring environment and provide high-quality teaching and learning. We are pleased to currently be ranked third for student progress at Sixth Form level across the whole of Birmingham.
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. We have a very supportive Pastoral Team, including the Head of Sixth Form and experienced personal tutors who support all students throughout their time here.
Students are provided with the opportunity to gain additional qualifications and skills through the Enrichment Programme. The Extended Project Qualification is available for students. Students are supported step by step through applications to universities and apprenticeships: whatever the student wants to pursue after Sixth Form, individual advice and guidance is given.
The excellent results that our students achieve have allowed recent Year 13 leavers to gain places on a wide range of degree programmes, including Architecture, Biomedical Science, History, and Law. We have success in supporting students in applications for Oxford and Cambridge.
We hope that you find the information linked below both informative and useful and that, having read it, you will choose to become a student at Hillcrest School. Visits to the sixth form are recommended and we look forward to receiving your application.
