Hills Road Sixth Form College

Upgrading facilities and teaching in sports and music for use by the college and the region


The College has achieved outstanding academic results since being removed from local authority control in 1983. Adopting a dynamic and visionary approach, and with the support of public and private-sector funds, the College now provides high-quality education in first-class accommodation for an expanded body of some 1500 full-time sixth formers and 1500 part-time adult students. It also provides an important local resource: serving as the base for two city orchestras; accommodating exhibition space for students and local professional artists; and with a national-level sports centre that attracts a wide cross-section of the general public including those with disabilities.
