School Admission

Bristol City Council are responsible for the entire admissions process. Our admin team will be able to advise you on who to contact and when. However, please be aware that we have no influence over how places are allocated.

In order to meet the needs of the children already on roll, teaching and learning spaces need to be used flexibly and for a variety of purposes. Therefore Hillcrest Primary School Governors have determined that the maximum class size will be 30 children to enable the most effective teaching and learning to take place in a refurbished, undersized Victorian building.
