To open minds, inspire hearts and nurture dreams
To empower young people to make a positive difference
In the early 1980s, a small group of dedicated teachers dared to dream …
… what happened next became Hillbrook.
At Hillbrook, our classrooms are filled with limitless possibilities. Our young people will move into careers that we haven’t begun to imagine, and if we want them to thrive in that environment, a strong sense of balance will be a powerful advantage.
This is why Hillbrook’s motto, ‘In Balance We Grow‘ has special meaning to everyone here . It’s fundamental to our vision: ‘To open minds, inspire hearts and nurture dreams‘. It is expresssed in the way we balance intellectual, spiritual, personal and physical development. Importantly it’s woven through every aspect of the school.
We are preparing our students to live happy, fulfilling lives and, we hope, make a positive difference in the world. We aim to provide a realistic and stimulating environment where they learn to challenge and question, to respect one another’s contributions, to enjoy each other’s company and to work effectively together as they grow.
Schools have to dare to dream … schools have to dare to take risks.
