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 eleven years, in the top thirty Preparatory schools in England and in the top ten for the last four years (The Sunday Times 2021). This year, it was ranked 5th= 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.

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.

Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte as next on our art tick-list! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽจ โœ…

Year 4 really enjoyed studying his work and creating their own intricate pieces based on Magritte's style and unorthodox vision.

The class really enjoyed their art classes last term and, judging by the quality of the work they produced, we definitely have some talented young artists in the making!Photos from Highfield Priory School's post

Year 4 were looking at unique work of British artist Lucy Sparrow last term.

Lucy takes one of the children's favourite themes - corner shop confectionary and sweets - and creates incredible replications made entirely from felt! ๐Ÿญ ๐Ÿฌ ๐Ÿซ

The pupils loved how clever and creative this was and came up with concepts in their sketch books before putting their sewing skills to the test and attempting to create their own felt-based treats. ๐Ÿงต ๐Ÿชก

They did a great job and their work is now on display in Highfield's temporary 'corner shop' installation in the art room!Photos from Highfield Priory School's post
