Study

Hillcrest aims to help students do their work thoroughly and well.

We have a well-lit study room with Wi-Fi, printing facilities and Chromebooks, the perfect place to get homework and revision done efficiently.

The study operates as a No Phone Zone to help our students to focus on getting their work done effectively, and a Supervisor is present during allocated silent Study Labs (see below). Everyone is welcome to make use of Hillcrest’s study facilities.

“Knowing that everyone else around me is trying to get their work done well really helps me to focus.”
-Maria, A-Level student
“I never thought I’d say this, but leaving my phone in the basket makes me way more productive!”
-Olivia, Year 9

The Easter Study Course

Every year in the Easter Holidays, Hillcrest participates in The Easter Study Course, a 6-day residential course organised by Tamezin Club for students in years 10-13.  The ESC is very popular and over-subscribed every year as it’s the perfect opportunity to get homework and revision done in a productive study atmosphere, just before exam season kicks off.

Watch the video below for a summary of the ESC 2018 which took place in Coniston Hall.

The aim of the project is for the participants to develop an awareness of the needs of others and to foster growth in good study habits. Furthermore, the girls will maximise their time and develop life-long skills in resilience, emotional intelligence and thorough study.

We offer two supervised study sessions a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays [2019]:

  • Tuesdays 4.30pm-6.30pm
  • Thursdays 4.30pm-6.30pm

There will also be opportunities to participate in Study Weekends. Dates for these will be distributed at the start of each term.
