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.

The diagram below illustrates the elements of the Diploma and this leaflet outlines what the Diploma involves and how it works.  Click here for full details of the Hamilton College Diploma.  Should you have any specific queries, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
