"Our child thrives at school. He enjoys every aspect and we love that all children know each other whatever age or class they are in. The family ethos at the school is something we see as unique."
Lancashire's Number One Independent Preparatory School - The Sunday Times
Highfield Priory School is an Independent Co-educational Day School for children from the age of two to eleven years. We are situated in the Fulwood area of Preston, within easy distance of the M6 which makes us handy for parents on their daily commute. The school is a real haven of tranquillity amidst the hustle and bustle of the busy city. We enjoy nine acres of grounds, our own conservation area and outdoor classroom.
At Highfield, we focus on the education of the whole person. A Highfield pupil is a happy, intelligent and confident child who is aware of and interested in the wider world and 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.
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. This is our twelfth year running in the top thirty of The Sunday Times Top 100 Preparatory Schools in England and our fifth year in the top ten. The Sunday Times Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the country’s best schools.
Highfield Priory School encourages and inspires its children to aim high in all that they do, not only with regard to academic success but also with regard to behaviour, self-respect, self-discipline and good manners. We are committed to helping our children to prepare for their future.
