Hills Road is a sixth form college whose principal role is to provide high quality education for local 16-19 year olds.

All students attending CAP schools are regarded as in-area, regardless of their post codes.
If you don't attend a CAP school and your home post code is not on the list, you will be considered as an 'out-area' candidate.
All students should apply for a place on a Cambridge Area 14-19 Partnership (CAP) application form,
or its online equivalent at UCAS Progress for participating schools (your school will be able to tell you if they are part of this system).
Your application should reach the College by 30th January 2015.
If you have any further questions about this, please contact Claire Walker, Admissions Officer, by calling (01223) 278038 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A pdf version of the CAP form for printing and completion, plus guidance notes, are available in the 'Related Information' section on this page.

You are encouraged to apply to more than one centre to keep your options open. The same application form can be photocopied, along
with your supporting documents, and sent to each centre. You are also stongly advised to make provision in your own area. The College will decide whether or not individual out-area
applicants will be invited to interview in the light of the pattern of applications received.
