Based in Tonbridge, Kent, Hillview School for Girls is an 11 to 18 girls’ all-ability school with a thriving, mixed Sixth Form. We chose to become an academy in August 2011 and are one of the highest-achieving non-selective girls’ School in Kent.
We are a creative, inclusive school where all students flourish and make exceptional progress. Our dynamic Performing and Visual Arts specialisms have a profound impact upon learning and contribute to the purposeful, friendly and stimulating atmosphere that permeates the school. We foster self-esteem and high aspirations.
By encouraging a ‘can-do’ culture, our students become astute, ambitious and independent. Visitors often comment about how articulate and enthusiastic our students are.
We also have a proven track record of excellent results (In 2015, 67% of our students achieved 5 or more GCSEs, grades A*-C including English and Maths).
Our rich, varied curriculum engages our students and equips them with the skills they need to make their way in the world. We help students develop a range of transferable skills from teamwork, leadership and independence through to communication, self-expression and time management.
Our strong pastoral system ensures that behaviour is excellent and there is a relaxed but purposeful atmosphere throughout the school where young people can thrive and feel supported.
We have a vibrant, mixed Sixth Form that provides a variety of pathways for students to extend their learning, gain work experience with one of our many industry partners and prepare for university or work.
