Seventh Year Running in the Top 30 of The Sunday Times Top 100 Independent Prep Schools in England

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 (seven 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.

Thank you 4S for concluding the class assemblies for this term. I really enjoyed your topic, ‘Prehistoric Britain’, which you have been studying this term. You gave us a fascinating insight into what life was like at this time, including actually meeting characters from the period! Well done and thank you Mr. Sheppeck for organising this assembly.

Congratulations to our Year 4 children who won the High Five Award this week for their impeccable behaviour at Haigh Hall. Many people commented on their beautiful manners and how lovely they all were to each other and their guides. Well done, Year 4!
Haigh Hall continued (by Year 4).
After bug-house building, we did mini-beast hunting. We went into the deep, dense, woodland and immediately started lifting huge, heavy pieces of wood or rocks. We found two huge slugs, six woodlice, seven millipedes and three worms. When we went further into the forest, another team found a toad! And Mrs Shackleton picked it up! I had lots of fun and wish I could go again.
