Lancashire's Number One Independent Preparatory School - The Sunday Times

We are very proud of Highfield Priory School and of our reputation as the top Independent Preparatory School in Lancashire and the North West of England.

Historically, Highfield was set up by the business men and women of Preston who wanted something more for their children: the very best education at an affordable price.

Highfield has its own brand of Elocution exams included within the fees for all Junior pupils. Year Five and Six pupils receive focused teaching for Entrance Exams and Interview preparation to enable them to access the Independent and Grammar Schools.

The latest from Highfield Priory

Year Three have been conducting experiments, in class and at home, to see which objects and materials create a shadow. They tested leather, tiles, bubble wrap, cardboard, glass and many other items and they also looked at what happens when the light source moves closer or further away from the object. At the end of the lesson, Year Three knew what the words ‘opaque’, ‘transparent’ and ‘translucent’ meant. 3M and 3D have also made some shadow puppets. We can't wait to see them! Super work, Year 3! ... See moreSee less
