If you would like to visit Hill House and see the exceptional education provided, and meet our excellent pupils, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.

You are very welcome to visit the school on any day.

Admission to Hill House can take place at any stage of education, although the most common times are at Reception, Year 7 and Sixth Form. Most children start Hill House at the beginning of a term, but occasionally an immediate start may be appropriate.

The admission’s procedure normally follows an individual visit and tour, a visit to our September Open Day or our October Sixth Form Information Evening. On such a visit, parents and children can meet the Headmaster, Head of Senior School, Head of Junior School or Head of Sixth Form, can view the facilities, visit lessons, and, most importantly, meet some of our pupils.

The Junior School (Reception to Year 6) is not academically selective, although pupils need to be able to access the curriculum successfully and behave well. Admission is by means of a taster day, where we can assess your child, and together we can determine whether Hill House is the right school for your child.

The Senior School is selective, and entrance into Year 7, both for those in our Junior School and those from other schools, is dependent on performance in our Senior School Entrance Examination, and, for those from other schools, on a taster day and school reports. Admission to Year 7 after the Entrance Day, or to Years 8 to 10, is based on a taster day, assessments and school reports. For academic reasons, admission to GCSE courses after the start of Year 10 is unusual.

Potential Sixth Formers are warmly welcome to our Sixth Form Information Evening; admission is based upon success at GCSE.
