"It is not what one knows but what one does with what one knows that is significant."
In an age where Google has become a verb, knowledge has become a commodity available to all. At Hilton College we educate for sustainability by developing in our boys the ability and the desire:
- To think critically, flexibly and creatively
- To learn continuously
- To work hard
We do this with a team of passionate and engaged teachers who are themselves lifelong learners. We make significant and meaningful use of technology as an enabler for teaching and learning. Cutting-edge strategies conversant with the latest research into learning and the brain guide and inform our practice. We use our incomparable estate as an outdoor classroom. Fewer, longer lessons allow for greater engagement, promoting deeper learning. We pride ourselves on having a plan for each boy wherein we acknowledge and cater to his unique nature. Lessons are engaging, compelling and varied.
At Hilton College we believe that to live is to learn.
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.
Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." (Martin Luther King Jr.)
