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.

Musical Assembly
Thank you to all our musicians for an excellent first assembly of this half-term. The newly formed Junior Choir performed for the first time with its new recruits who were standing proud with their new choir folders and badges.
Our pianists played beautifully with pupils from every year group in the Juniors including two new ones who both performed with confidence in front of the large audience. We also watched our woodwind group perform for the first time and the last brass performance with Mrs Greig before she begins her maternity leave. We also listened to a lovely solo by Brooke. Congratulations to you all on your hard work. Your dedication and practice has produced some beautiful results. A big thank you to Miss Macklam for organising this assembly.

Congratulations and Happy Diwali to everyone who has been celebrating the festival of lights to mark the start of the Hindu new year. Our Year Three children have been studying the festival in depth in their RE lessons. They have enjoyed learning about the festival of lights and creating Diwali art and their own diyas to light up the world. A big thank you to our very own Diya and her mother for sharing their knowledge and experience of Diwali with Year Three.
