Hillside High School

The whole team of staff at Hillside is committed to making the best choices for our pupils and to putting them at the fore of everything that we do. Our pupils get one chance at their education and we are determined that they get the very best that we can give.

We strive for the highest possible levels of achievement for all of our pupils. We set the highest standards and will accept only the highest effort and conduct from our pupils. Young people thrive at Hillside and are courteous, friendly and extremely happy during their time at the school.
Hillside High School has been helping the young people of Bootle realise their academic potential and providing them with the skills and values they need for life’s journey since 1932 when the school was founded as the Bootle Girls’ Grammar School.

We are proud of our place at the centre of the community and want our pupils to leave us as outward-looking and forward-thinking young men and women, ready to take their place in society. We believe in the power and value of education to change lives and change the world.

After the tour, you will be given the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the different options for Training to Teach.
