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 S6 with a more distinctive experience in the final phase of school life.
As well as giving more recognition to some of the wider 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, 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.
