HILLCREST High School has achieved over 40 years of excellence in serving our local community, providing exceptional physical and social environments in which all learners have the opportunity to become the best they can be academically, culturally, socially, and in sport. We aim to be at the leading edge of integrating technology into teaching and learning, as well as into leading, managing and operating our school. We are the only school in KZN to be nominated as a Microsoft Showcase School. We invest in Honour (developing character and leadership) and Hard work (academically, culturally and in sport), so we can Serve and influence (our communities) positively. This is captured succinctly in our school slogan: Where Good Results. Our five pillars of Academics, Sport, Culture, Community Service, and Leadership are aimed at giving students opportunities, to develop and excel holistically. We had another outstanding Matric pass-rate in 2017 with a pass rate of 99,47%. and 80.42% Bachelor passes, with our top student achieving no less than nine distinctions, including 100% in History!

We are honoured to be presented with awards for the best Matric results in our Kwasanti Circuit. Many of our students have achieved international recognition for their achievements across all of our five pillars in the sporting, academic, cultural as well as service and leadership spheres. Our balanced and co-educational approach helps students to be well adjusted to the real world, developing their skills and character – life is, after all, co-educational.

Our theme for 2018 has been “If it is to be, It is up to me”. Not everyone can come first, but everyone can aim to do their very best and achieve their best results in everything that they do. A particular mention to our Class of 2018 from our Headmaster, Mr Craig Girvin: “Our Matrics are almost finished writing the most important set of examinations of their school career and the grades eight –11’s have now embarked on their examinations. I wish them well for their results and hope that they will enjoy the success they deserve. Our Open Day takes place on Wednesday, 13 February 2019 — we’d love to see you there.” -Supplied
