Admission - Applying for a primary school place

 

The Bristol City Council Primary Admissions Department manages the whole admissions process.

Our school office team can advise you who to contact and when but we have no influence over how places are allocated.

 

Find out all about primary school admission, and apply on line for a school place, on the Bristol City Council website here:

Visiting the school

 

Each Autumn we hold open evenings for parents of children due to start school the following September. This year, these were held on 18th and 21st October 2021. 

You can view the slides from the presentation HERE.

You can also watch a short film introducing Hillcrest HERE.

 

 

In-year Applications

 

If you are considering applying for a place at Hillcrest for an older child, or at any other time of year, call Sue Cockle in our school office - 0117 3772440 - to arrange a time for one of us to show you around the school (if Covid restrictions allow). 

 

 

The number of children at Hillcrest

 

Our School Governors have set the maximum class size at 30 children, to allow the most flexible and effective use of our refurbished, undersized, Victorian building.

 

We have two form entry - two classes of 30 children in each year group.
