The admission process

Admission to the college is not automatic. Learners must apply for admission and are subject to a selection process involving an interview with the principal attended by the prospective learner and parent / guardian. The interview is followed by a campus tour to view first-hand the facilities and learning environment on offer.

Careful consideration is given to each application. Important factors that are considered include the student’s high school record, honesty, desirable traits of character, personality and acceptance of self-accountability in-line with the ethos and values of the college. No pupil will be refused admission to The Hill College on grounds of race, sex, or religious beliefs.
Prospective students must bring their last academic report and any relevant supportive documents to the interview.

Attendance of an interview does not automatically imply acceptance. Once an acceptance letter has been received, the applicant’s seat is only confirmed on receipt of the necessary payment deposit.

The College reserves the right to request any additional information before a decision for admission is made. Prospective learners may be required to write an entrance test and a confidential report from the applicant’s previous school Principal may be requested.
Providing false or incomplete information on the application for admission or during the interview process may result in a denial of admission or revocation of the enrolment. Should a learner’s behaviour be deemed to infringe on the culture, values, of the college, or rights of fellow learners; the college reserves to revoke the enrolment of the offending learner at the end of a term, or academic year. Such a learner will be given prior warning if the process is being instituted.

Terms and conditions must be signed by parents/guardians before a learner is admitted to the college. All college policies, rules and regulations are available for perusal on our premises by any current learner or prospective learner.

Steps in the application process:

  1. Contact college and book a time and date for an interview to be attended by the applicant accompanied by at least one parent / guardian. This gives the opportunity for all parties to ask relevant questions, and also the opportunity for the applicants to view the college’s facilities. (Please bring last set of results / report(s) to the interview)
  2. After interview, applicants that the college feel could qualify as a prospective Hill College learners / students will be given an application form. (no application forms are given without the interview process being completed)
  3. Successful interviewees who wish to apply for enrolment, the application form accompanied by the necessary supporting documentation must be submitted to the college secretary with the accompanying application fee. All successful candidates will be notified in writing (e-mail) within 10 days of their application being received.
  4. On receipt of written acceptance, pay necessary deposits to confirm seat in grade. Please note, a learners place is only confirmed once the full required deposit has been received by the college. Commence attending college per application agreement. (It must be noted that if a grade / class is full due to a delay in the necessary deposits being received, regardless of acceptance letter – the acceptance can be annulled based on capacity constraints.)
