Headmaster's Welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website and to share our school with you.

This year Highfield Priory School was the proud winner of the National Junior and Preparatory School Award for Excellence and Innovation (Independent Schools' Association). This was awarded to Highfield for its long history of academic excellence (eight years in the top thirty Preparatory schools in England -The Sunday Times) as well as its excellence and innovation across the curriculum and in our extra-curricular programme.

As you explore our website, I hope it will be apparent that life at Highfield is about the education of the whole person and that a Highfield pupil is a happy, intelligent and confident child who is aware of and interested in the wider world and in their local community. The wealth of opportunity open to our pupils encourages an active mind, an active body and a true desire to Aim High in all that they do in life.

Whilst our website will indeed offer you an insight into life at Highfield, a school really needs to be seen in action. Please do call me to arrange a tour of our School and Nursery.

I look forward to meeting you.
Mr Jeremy Duke

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Well done to all of our cross country runners who took part in the ISA Cross Country at Beech House on Wednesday. With around 120 runners in each event and muddy conditions, the races were tough. However, the Highfield spirit and great determination shone through to produce some excellent performances. Well done everyone!

Our Reception children have done some amazing map work recently and the idea came from Harriet who said she wanted to find Chorley on a map. The children talked with their talk partners about maps and direction. They then helped each other to find places on a grid and they even went outside in the snow to practise following directions. Well done, Reception!
