Hillcrest will be open on Thursday 21 August 2014 for Year 10 and 11 pupils to collect their provisional examination results slips from the Leisure Centre. The times are as follows:
Year 11 - 10.30am - 12.00noon

Our school is participating in the EduVoice fundraising programme. Hillcrest Parents' Group/ PTA is working in partnership with EduVoice to provide schools with an easy and fun way for you and your children (age 16 and over only) to help raise funds for our school. You'll be pleased to know it does not require you to spend any money and does not require you to buy anything. In fact, you can earn money yourself, if you wish.
