Hillcrest Preparatory School

Students entering the Preparatory School can look forward to an invigorating curriculum that will broaden their horizons and propel them to achieve their individual potential. Our international teaching Staff is dedicated to providing stimulating, diverse lessons that inspire students to find new ways to engage with subjects. Students follow the British National Curriculum, and work towards the internationally recognised Common Entrance examinations at the end of year 8. Combined with our exciting extra-curricular programme and sporting success, we are sure that Hillcrest Prep School is the number one choice for your child.

Head Teacher's Tour

On Wednesdays and Thursdays our Headteacher, Mrs Angie Gardiner, is available to provide prospective parents with a full tour of our Preparatory facilities and answer questions along the way in regards to the future developments of Hillcrest Preparatory.

Did you know that we can arrange a Taster Day?

Taster days are the perfect way to experience life at Hillcrest Prep School. Your child will be assigned a buddy for the day and will be fully immersed in a normal school day to get a true taste of  the school.

Preparatory  Mission Statement:

Promoting creativity, fostering a curiosity for knowledge and developing multi-media skills are key to our principles of learning so that students are well-adjusted and fulfilled in the classroom. The safe and supportive environment of the school enables children to express themselves confidently and openly as they develop their ideas and discover new interests.

Preparatory School Aims:

  • To respect and value each other in a multicultural family
  • To provide individual focus and personalized learning to develop individual abilities to levels of excellence in academics / sport / arts
