Hamilton College Diploma
We are delighted to announce the recent launch of the Hamilton College Diploma. This unique Diploma will provide our young people in S5 and S6 with a more distinctive experience in the final phase of school life.
As well as giving more recognition to some of the extra-curricular aspects of life at Hamilton College, the Diploma will promote independent thinking, enhance UCAS applications, help prepare pupils for post-school life and provide leadership opportunities.
Naturally, pupils will continue to focus on their SQA examinations, particularly in S5, with academic attainment a key element of the Diploma. In S6 pupils will undertake a series of electives, designed to develop broader skills and aptitudes. They will also build up a portfolio of experiences as they engage with the varied components of the Diploma.
