Hillcrest is committed to broadening our student’s opportunities to access the education it offers and has a programme of scholarships to recognise academic, artistic, dramatic, musical, athletic and all-round talent in new students.

Scholars are encouraged for the contribution they make to school life and for the role they play in raising the aspirations of other pupils. The number of awards made in any year is based on the quality and circumstances of candidates.  

At Hillcrest, we offer two different types of scholarships – the Frank Thompson Scholarships and the Hillcrest Secondary School Scholarships.
