Aiming High: Secondary Schools

At Highfield, we work to ensure that each child fulfils his or her potential and takes full advantage of all the opportunities Highfield Priory has to offer. Each pupil is challenged and stretched at every opportunity with the emphasis remaining on literacy, numeracy and scientific investigation. Additionally, we seek to develop children's creative and imaginative aptitudes, whether they are in music, art, sport or the performing arts.

Children are prepared for their first choice of senior school which the majority of our children achieve. Each year, a number of children are offered scholarships including the highest available for academic performance, musical or sporting ability. A high percentage of children gain a place at Grammar School from outside the catchment area. Children at Highfield continue to aim high year on year.

The latest from Highfield Priory

Our Year 5 and 6 Boys headed to Rossall for a rugby fixture this week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! 🏉 🏉

The team showed huge improvements in all three of the matches played and there were plenty of tired but happy faces at the end of the day. 🙂 🙂

They are already excited for their next match and we are looking forward to following their progress... 💪Photos from Highfield Priory School's post
