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
