What the school says...

Highfields Independent School & Day Nursery is a thriving and supportive environment with a strong sense of family and well embedded values and traditions of which the school is very proud.
Set in fourteen acres of mature parkland, including wonderful sports fields, the grounds provide a beautiful setting for children to explore, whilst enjoying their education. The Highfields school building is steeped in history, with an exquisite entrance hall, and stain glass windows, with a warm and welcoming feel.

Personal growth and wellbeing are valued as highly as academic success with an emphasis on the holistic development of the individual. Highfields provide children with a wealth of contextualised learning experiences to create meaningful connections, skills and memories which last a lifetime.
Sport, Music, Forest School, Speech and Drama as well as the Arts are all equally important components of the full and exciting curriculum that has been developed in order to build well rounded young individuals.

At Highfields, curiosity is championed and pupils are encouraged to realise their potential and discover new talents across all areas of the curriculum through very high levels of engagement and participation.

We develop ‘Highfeldians’ who are prepared not only for senior school, but life beyond. Flexible, independent thinkers and learners with a love of adventure and a strong sense of identity, Highfields pupils are spirited, resourceful and self-motivated with respect for both themselves and others. Able to identify and appreciate opposing opinions and beliefs, Highfields build proactive, tolerant and considered global citizens of the future with a well-developed sense of responsibility, and a desire to make a difference to our world.
In 2023 100% of our students were accepted into their first choice Grammar or Independent School – many with scholarships.
Why not pay us a visit - we would love to welcome you to our school with a difference!
