It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of The Highfield School and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website.
For those of you considering your child’s secondary or Sixth Form school place, The Highfield School’s annual open events give parents, carers and children the opportunity to see much of what our school has to offer. This year, we have moved to virtual events through our website. Please click here for more information on these events. Here, you will also find our digital school prospectus, the virtual Headteacher’s speech, virtual tours and others materials to assist you in making these important decisions.
The Highfield school is an ambitious school where all are encouraged to achieve their full potential. This is based on a culture of high expectation, challenge and the support needed, so that by working hard together, we can all achieve our goals. We have an excellent reputation both academically and pastorally. This reputation is based on outstanding teaching and learning and high standards and expectations. We expect all our students to work very hard but recognise that the very best learning takes place when it is harnessed to interest and enjoyment. Our curriculum is therefore innovative and relevant and whilst there is a great emphasis on English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages, this is balanced by a promotion of and dedication to the arts and creativity.
