What says..

School day action packed with classroom-based teaching across the curriculum, no shortage of educational off-site visits and a mind-boggling number of extracurricular clubs and activities (some included in fees); we particularly like imagineering, boyz noyz and mini messy church. For pre-school group, specialist teaching in physical education, music, drama, French and forest school starts to ease them into reception. Independent writing strongly encouraged, with golden writing sessions every term from reception.  Each piece of work is…

What the school says...

Highfield is the co-educational prep department of Harrogate Ladies College (HLC). Highfield celebrates an important and wonderful stage in a child’s development. From the first day at school we aim to make this a happy, exciting and inspiring journey towards senior school.

Children join Highfield from across Harrogate and the surrounding area and are taught in small class sizes enabling us to focus on their individual development. This approach helps our children to achieve their full potential both inside and outside of the classroom.

Children at our school love to learn. It’s part of our culture; part of who we are. We believe in learning through real life experiences and our curriculum is full of exciting opportunities. As well as fantastic class teachers, children also benefit from specialist French, PE, Drama, Music, Art and Swimming lessons every week from Reception.

With almost 50 extra-curricular activities to choose from, children have the opportunity to try new things; learn new skills and develop their individual talents, all within the school environment.

As part of Harrogate Ladies’ College, our boys and girls benefit from access to a wide range of teaching, sports, drama, music and arts facilities not normally available to younger children, all of which help us to enhance the school experience.

By the time children leave us they’re fully equipped to tackle the next stage in their educational career and go on to achieve great things beyond our school.
