Garth Hill College is a DCSF designated Technology College for pupils aged 11-19 years of age.

The College serves the community of North Bracknell and surrounding areas. We are committed to the principles of comprehensive education. Our aim is to provide the very best teaching and support so that everyone in our learning community can achieve success.

We offer a wide range of courses and, as a second phase Technology College, learning and teaching is well supported by modern, state-of-the-art resources. A team of very dedicated, well qualified staff are well supported by a highly skilled and experienced Governing Body.

These are very exciting times for the College. Academic results have improved significantly in recent years and expectations are high. A complete re-build of the College is due for completion by Summer 2010. This will help us to deliver an even better educational experience to our young people.

Garth Hill is a CMCD© and BLP college. ‘Consistency Management Cooperative Discipline’ (Dr H Jerome Freiberg) creates the right climate for learning, whilst ‘Building Learning Power’ (Prof. Guy Claxton, TLO Ltd.) deepens the learning experience.

We expect our young people to demonstrate good behaviour, self-discipline, respect and responsibility. We praise and reward good citizenship, but there are clearly understood sanctions for unacceptable conduct. Garth Hill is a happy place to be. Our learners take pride in their college and enjoy coming here.

Comments from our Pupils:

“The teachers understand your problems and try to help as much as they can.”

“I was surprised at the amount of choice we are given here, and also the trust and responsibility they give us. Garth Hill is much more than I thought it would be.”

“Garth Hill has the best drama facilities in Bracknell. Every year we put on a fantastic musical. We also are the best at every sport as well!”
