Hillview School for Girls is a large non-selective, single-sex school with a co-educational Sixth Form. The school is oversubscribed and is highly popular within the local area, attracting students from all ability ranges, with an interest in creative subjects, a supportive pastoral ethos and high expectations. We are a high-attaining Single Academy Trust with attainment being amongst the top non-selectives in Kent and performing within the top 10% of all schools nationally based on Progress 8 in 2018. The school is proud of its Performing Arts Specialism and has a long-standing record of high achievement in these subjects and across the curriculum over many years. Ofsted visited in 2018 and the school achieved a Good grading, the school is well on it’s way to Outstanding. Our belief is around the pure potential and possibility of the child. Our vision is that “Students unlock their pure potential to drive their future and thrive in society”. We believe that our students can achieve highly and can be successful, we do not limit their success and support our students to believe in themselves and reach for the very highest standards. To achieve this we maintain a supportive, respectful environment where we all work together to make Hillview the very best it can be. We have focused and calm learning environments, where students come to learn and teachers can teach, with a robust behaviour management system to support where needed.
As a school we value a broad and flexible curriculum. We do not limit our students to studying the EBACC and allow a relatively free choice across GCSEs and one of the widest range of subject offers at KS5. We believe that students should be able to study the subjects where they are able to succeed and thrive and actively support skills and knowledge development within all areas of study. We offer a wide range of opportunities and believe that it is through engagement within these opportunities that the students can show most growth and development personally. This is supported through our PDL curriculum that runs throughout the school and supports the students in understanding themselves, the world around them and how to manage their lives. This includes a strong careers programme that aids learners in making choices for the future through well-planned and provisioned careers workshops.
Our expanding Sixth Form is successful and popular, with students choosing our provision for many reasons: the performing or creative subjects, for a range of academic studies or for the breadth of choice. Students’ progress to universities, specialist performing arts and creative arts college/schools, apprenticeships and employment.
