Ten Reasons Why You Should Choose Highfield Priory School For Your Child
We have a long reputation of academic excellence. This is our tenth year running in the top 30 of The Sunday Times Top 100 Preparatory Schools in England and our third year in the top ten. We are currently 7th in England and 1st in the North West.
In 2019, we achieved the highest grading possible from the Independent Schools Inspectorate for our School and Nursery: 'Outstanding' (EYFS) and 'Excellent' across all areas (School).
We have been awarded Three Star Gold Membership for our work with Gifted and Talented pupils.
We 'Aim High' for our children and prepare them academically, socially, physically and emotionally for the Grammar, Independent or State Secondary School of their choice.
We have Specialist Teachers and Facilities in Science, Modern Languages, Music, ICT, Drama, Sport, Elocution and Art.
We encourage our children to develop a love and appreciation of the great outdoors through Orienteering and Team Building exercises, a Residential Trip to Shropshire and in our outdoor classroom, Highfield Haven.
Our children discover and develop new talents through our extensive Extra-Curricular Activity Programme.
We hold a firm belief in inclusion: all children are given regular opportunities to build confidence in competitive sporting fixtures and performing on stage in front of an audience.
We have a long history and a strong sense of tradition and traditional teaching methods; we do not allow government policy to cause us to deviate from giving our pupils a firm and confident grounding in Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.
We work hard to help our pupils to be the best that they can be, but we also work hard for their parents. We know modern life is hectic and unpredictable and we understand the importance of establishing trust and confidence as well as Extended Care to allow for the demands of the working parent.
We marked the end of another busy term here at Highfield with a special musical assembly!
Using the wonders of modern technology, our ten performers joined together virtually, with some performing live in the hall and others via video from home.
The pupils have been practising hard for weeks and were really excited to perform for the whole school via Teams. Each performer played excellently and they were all rewarded with enthusiastic applause from their audience.
This was our first musical assembly for a year and it was such a good feeling to bring this tradition back and see the pleasure it brought to our school community. A massive congratulations to all the children who took part - we are already looking forward to developing this event later in the year! ... See moreSee less
