In Years 7 and 8, pupils enjoy a broad yet challenging curriculum and expert teaching, allowing them discover the joys of more mature study and the importance of having high expectations of themselves. From Year 9, pupils follow a core curriculum while choosing from a large number of additional subjects.
English, Mathematics, Sciences and Modern Languages are all important parts of the Senior School curriculum, while pupils can also enjoy a significant level of variety, encompassing subjects as different as Computing and Philosophy, Politics and Ethics, Economics and Latin, Psychology and Business Studies. Pupils normally sit nine or ten GCSEs, and 3 or 4 A levels. Hill House is the top school in the area for GCSE and A Level results, and almost all Upper Sixth Form leavers gain places at their chosen university.
