Our Philosophy

The Highfield Vision

Our vision extends beyond the classroom to achieve excellence in providing an all-round education. We can do this through strong partnerships with the children, their parents and the school. 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a friendly and caring independent day school for children up to Year 6, with high academic standards, maximising the potential of each child by focusing on them as an individual and working closely with parents and all members of the Highfield community to achieve our aims.

Every child matters and their learning should be fun, purposeful and challenging. We are committed to delivering inspirational teaching, encouraging the children to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring and active citizens in the global community.


Highfield is a lively school, sustaining values which encourage children to develop a love of learning and to discover their own strengths in a caring atmosphere where every person is valued.

Highfield aims to develop skills for life:  self-confidence, resilience, independence, respect for others and the environment, creativity and imagination and a desire to live life to the full.

“Highfield is the very best of schools. It has been perfect for our daughter and I couldn’t ask for more. It’s family culture sets it apart and it has all the right values. It is diverse, inclusive, teaches right and wrong from an early stage and aims to produce kind and clever girls who are aware of the world and care for the people around them. We did consider moving our daughter to be in the same school as our son for ease but we couldn’t do it!”
