Headmaster's Welcome

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

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.

Highfield Priory School has a long history of academic excellence. Its National Curriculum Test results have placed it, for the last ten years, in the top thirty Preparatory schools in England (The Sunday Times 2020). This year, it was ranked 7th in England and 1st in the North West. Our 2019 ISI Inspection observed that, "the quality of pupils' academic and other achievements is excellent".

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.

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.

Our Reception class celebrated the end of term in style last week, with their Easter Bonnet Parade!

They didn't let the rain stop them as they showed off their brilliant bonnets around the school before heading to Highfield Haven in search of the Easter Bunny! 😀🐰

We marked the end of another busy term here at Highfield with a special musical assembly!

Using the wonders of modern technology, our ten performers joined together virtually, with some performing live in the hall and others via video from home.

The pupils have been practising hard for weeks and were really excited to perform for the whole school via Teams. Each performer played excellently and they were all rewarded with enthusiastic applause from their audience.

This was our first musical assembly for a year and it was such a good feeling to bring this tradition back and see the pleasure it brought to our school community. A massive congratulations to all the children who took part - we are already looking forward to developing this event later in the year!
