Sixth Form Centre


We would like to welcome you to Hill Top School’s Sixth Form page.

Since moving into our new build in November 2014, the Sixth Form pupils and staff are enjoying the new bespoke facilities. The centre has been named The Jim Dawson Sixth Form Centre in memory of Mr Dawson, former Assistant Head of Hill Top who died in June 2014. The Sixth form pupils follow a curriculum which continues to develop their literacy and numeracy skills, but also gives them opportunities to choose subjects which interest them and help to promote life and employability skills.
