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.

They carefully counted their topping to make sure that they had doubled the number correctly. They had fun doubling their pizza toppings but they had even more fun eating them! Yummy! ...

Thank you, 1D, for your fantastic topic assembly on Friday in which you focused upon the work you have been doing in Science and Geography. Your Science topic for this term is identifying animals. I enjoyed your explanation of the animal groups and the differences between the animals in each group. You impressed us with your knowledge about animals and with your delivery. In the second part of your assembly, you took us on a trip around the world, including India and Russia. You also gave us an insight, through the eyes of a child your age, into each country which was particularly fascinating. Thank you for sharing your topics with us; it was lovely to see how passionate and enthusiastic you are about each subject. Thank you Mrs Davidson for organising this assembly. ... See moreSee less
