Highfield is a highly sought after English Country Prep School for children aged 8-13 years. Highfield enjoys outstanding academic success and feeds the top Senior Schools in England; Winchester, Eton, Downe House and Marlborough, to name but a few. The School is set in 175 acres of glorious Hampshire countryside, and yet is less than an hour from London and Heathrow Airport.
The facilities at Highfield are truly enviable, including extensive sports pitches, together with an indoor swimming pool, new science labs, and a state of the art music school and art school. Children at Highfield enjoy an enormous variety of Sports, Music, Art & Drama as part of the regular timetable as well as in after school activities. There is always so much going on and so much to do, whatever a child’s interests. Schools should be places of joy, wonder, excitement and enchantment and this is what we consistently strive to provide.
There really is no substitute for experience of boarding in a ‘Prep School’ before going on to Senior School. The smaller ‘family feel’ helps children settle in, and academically, they are swiftly and effectively brought up to speed with the British system and brilliantly prepared for entry to their first choice Senior School.
Boarding at Highfield prepares pupils very well for the transition to senior school. This excellent foundation means they settle easily at Winchester and become successful quickly.

All in all a delight and one of the most innovative and successful boarding and day preps going!
